Yanks pick up OF Justin Maxwell
'I wanna be where the fans are'

The Yankees made a small move today, acquiring Justin Maxwell from the Nationals. Maxwell has some promise. Before the 2010 season Baseball America ranked him 8th in the Nationals system, and he has displayed plenty of power. Mike and I break down where he fits in and how this represents the Yankees’ M.O. lately in acquiring outfielders.

    I’d love to see the Yanks also make an attempt to sign Lastings Milledge on a minor league deal. Milledge and Maxwell will give them plenty of options if Andruw Jones goes down or if the Yankees decide to trade a starting OF for a major leaguer. Their outfielders have some of the most trade potential but their minor league system has little OF depth.
