The New York Yankees are eyeing several big-name free agents this winter, but signing all of them certainly won't be easy for general manager Brian Cashman. Of their top five targets, maybe only one or two of them will end up signing with the Yankees.
Some of the Yankees' top targets will be heavily courted by other teams as well. The Yankees are looking at impact players, and they're obviously going to be highly sought after. With this being the case, look for small bidding wars to ensue between the Yankees and the competition.
Teams like the Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers, Philadelphia Phillies and Baltimore Orioles will surely give the Bombers a run for their money on several marquee free agents, as they all have the funds and the roster holes to necessitate a deal.
The Yankees have a plethora of needs, and it will be impossible for Cashman to fill each hole with a top-flight free agent. Some of their top five targets will sign elsewhere.
