On Saturday, the free-agency period began for Major League Baseball.
Every winter, it seems like every big name somehow gets tied to the New York Yankees, whether it be a free agent or a top trade target.
I don't know if it's because the Yankees have the largest payroll in the sport or that they're usually aggressive in the winter; either way, every major talent one way or another gets linked to the Bronx.
For example, both Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder both came up in rumor discussions with the Yankees, but nothing ever became of them.
What kind of rumors will we hear this winter involving the Yankees?
Look for five certain ones.
