With the MLB Winter Meetings in full swing, the prospects of another quiet offseason aren’t far off.
Even with the loss of Nick Swisher, and also with Alex Rodriguez having hip surgery, it doesn’t look as though the Yankees and Brian Cashman are going to surprise anyone with any big moves this offseason.
Cashman’s hands are tied with the Steinbrenner cost cutting mandate. Also, the re-signings of Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera and Hiroki Kuroda all points toward the Yankees now focusing on signing position players.
