At this point, fans of the New York Yankees know that after every season, bolstering the pitching staff and finding quality left-handed relievers is going to be Brian Cashman's top priority.
It has been for the past decade, so why should this year be any different?
Cashman has had some hits (CC Sabathia) and some misses (A.J. Burnett).

Unfortunately, the free-agent pitching class of 2012 is lacking in bonafide, front-of-the-rotation starters and shut-down relievers.
But there are still a number of quality arms available for the Yankees to choose from.
