Yankees Are Still Shopping for Talent

The New York Yankees stole the show early on in the off-season by resigning Aaron Judge, and making him the 16th Captain of the franchise. Then they made another huge move by signing left handed pitcher Carlos Rodon to a mega deal.

Now the Steinbrenner’s say they are not done.

The Yankees lost to the Houston Astros in the ALCS in 2022; actually they have lost to the ‘Stros in the ALCS three times in the last six seasons dating back to 2017.  The Yanks know that the only way to the crown is through Houston.  Even with the Texas Rangers beefing up their rotation, all baseball knows that the Astros are sure bets to repeat as AL champs, unless a surprise team can dethrone them.

Well the Yankees want to be that team and after signing Judge and Rodon, they indicated that they are not done. Maybe they will steal away Carlos Correa if the New York Mets can’t come to an agreement after he failed two physicals, with two teams, so far.  That would be a tragedy to all Mets fans including myself.

Word on the street is that Yanks GM Brian Cashman has had some talks with the Pittsburgh Pirates about a potential deal for outfielder Bryan Reynolds, who has indicated, he wants to be traded.

So even though there aren’t any real names mentioned yet as to whom the Yankees may be after, or who would they give up to get what they covet, the facts are the Yankees have never shied away from making a splash when it means improving the club for a World Series run. And they sure want to steal back the sports pages in New York City from the Mets who have made news of their own.

Who is next on the Yankees radar? Will be very interesting to see who will be the next imported talent to wear the pinstripes. We anxiously wait.
