Jacoby Ellsbury's season has been overshadowed by Gardner's play. Gardner has been the Yankees best player this year hitting .283/.361/.463 for a team leading 4.2 WAR.

The Red Sox might not be able to trade Lester, or the the prospects they get for Lester may not turn into valuable players in the future, but the willingness of the Red Sox to shop Lester demonstrates why the Red Sox are one of the smartest organizations in baseball.

Because of his age, and his sometimes surprising defensive ability, the team that signs Sandoval will not have to plan on using him as a full-time DH at any point during his potential five-year contract. Sandoval is far from a gold glove third-baseman, but he is not terrible at the hot corner.

Derek Jeter, Still Baseball's Most Underrated Overrated Player

Jeter's place in Yankee, and indeed baseball history, is significant, but still not clear. Much of that will take shape after Jeter retires.

The Yankees and Tanaka

The Tanaka signing will come under a lot of scrutiny; and it is very likely that if he starts out slow or if the Yankees have the poor season many foresee, Tanaka, and his contract, will be blamed. The Tanaka signing, however, is on its own a good and defensible move.

After a flurry of expensive free agent signings the Yankees have upgraded modestly in center, and significantly behind the plate, but they have gotten much worse at second base and have done nothing about big holes at shortstop and third base.

This will be a difficult and possibly strange off-season for the New York Yankees. The lawsuit between their star, aging and scandal-ridden third baseman Alex Rodriguez and Major League Baseball has drawn the most attention, but there is more.

It recently occurred to me that people's relationships with their sports teams last longer than any other. I have been a Yankees fan for nearly half a century, an amount of time that exceeds associations with barbers, restaurants, schools and even marriage.

The Yankees Have a Tough Choice on Robinson Cano

Cano has evolved into one of the best second baseman in Yankee history. It is hard for Yankee fans to imagine the Yankees without Cano, but it is all too easy to imagine the Yankees in 2018-2021 or so with an overpriced Cano splitting his time between first base and DH.
