Well, looks like the New York Yankees are going to have extra time this offseason to figure out their roster. One of the things they'll need to do is decide who to bring back. The Yankees have a number of contracts coming off the books.
Some, like Mariano Rivera, will be an easy decision. Others will be tougher.
Then there are the free agents who stand to not get paid by the Yankees, or any other team this offseason. Now by get paid, I mean get the huge contract they or their agent want or the contract/salary they're accustomed to getting.
Those are the players I'll be focusing on for this article. The Yankees seem intent on slashing payroll. One way to do it is to make sure they don't overpay players who don't deserve it. The players in this list are likely to be looking for some big money are definitely not going to get it from the Yankees.
