See that cloud coming this way?
Like the Tasmanian Devil, that is a gaggle of Yankees fans as they call for the heads of Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixiera and Nick Swisher, a trio who earned a combined $61.5 million this season and proceeded to go a combined 9-for-55 with three extra base hits, five RBI, four runs scored and 16 strikeouts in the ALDS, good enough for a .164 average.
But when the dust finally settles, it is very likely that all three will still be members of the New York Yankees.
For sure, A-Rod and Teixiera will be.
While most of the roster will remain intact, some changes are inevitable, though whether those changes come via trade or free agency remains to be seen.
After the jump, 10 players that the Yankees will check in on, and while some are more realistic than others, we are talking about the New York Yankees, a team that has proven in the past that you cannot count them out of the running for any player, regardless of what they may say.
Just ask the Boston Red Sox and Mark Teixiera.
