Now that a season in which the team used more players than any other year in its history is over, the New York Yankees enter the offseason with question marks at a number of positions.
Given that a self-imposed $189 million payroll cap looms as a result of the club attempting to avoid a luxury tax, activity in free-agency will be limited.
So, how will the Bombers address their problems?
The minor league system has few MLB-ready prospects and ranks in the middle of the pack with its talent.
Does GM Brian Cashman continue his trend of signing short-term contacts with veteran ballplayers past their prime, or does the organization bite the bullet and ride the shoulders of their youngsters?
Perhaps the $189 million isn't written in stone and we'll see the Yankees actively pursue upper tier free-agents?
Let's take a look at what the team is dealing with, and where it goes from here.
