King Felix in NY: A Few Things to Consider

It's another early offseason for the New York Yankees, so you all know what that means.

It's time for General Manager Brian Cashman to whip out his wallet, work some magic and put some more big time names in pinstripes. For many Yanks fans out there, there's no bigger or more realistic name out there than Mariners Ace Felix Hernandez.

The Yanks struck out big-time last year, missing out on one of the best pitchers in the league in Cliff Lee. After another lackluster year, at least by their standards, the Yankees may need to make a pretty big splash this offseason

I'm sure New York will forget all about their troubles and past mistakes if Cashman can reel in King Felix.

Rumors circled around Hernandez and the Yankees for most of the season last year, even though the ball never really got rolling on an actual trade package.

But a move like this is certainly more realistic now that both teams have a few months to make it happen. If Felix does get placed on the trading block, there's still a few things that the Yanks have to observe before they jump the gun and bring in a new King of New York. 

Here's a couple observations about the inevitable Yanks-Felix debacle this offseason.
