The Options For Phil Hughes

After this season, the Yankees have a decision to make in terms of Phil Hughes, the guy once designated for pinstripe greatness and ace-type status.  Hughes' contract (third year, arbitration eligible, one-year, $7.15 million) is up this year.  Here are the three options for the Yanks as far as Hughes goes after 2013:

Yankees Need To Get Cliff Lee

Back in 2010, the Yankees failed to get Cliff Lee because minor league infielder David Adams didn't pass a physical due to a bum ankle and so the trade never happened with Seattle and Lee went to Texas instead and helped the Rangers win the pennant.  Lee, at that time, was the surest pitcher in baseball.  He isn't that now, at the age of 34, but the Yankees should still go get him.

Leadership Helping Yanks Stay Ahead

Talk all day long about the 2013 replacement players in pinstripes.  Talk about general manager Brian Cashman taking chances.  Talk about the starting pitching being good enough in spots.  Talk about whatever you'd like as the main reason for the Yankees' demise not quite happening just yet like some thought.  The real talk is the leadership and presence of Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte.  As long as those three are in the Bronx, it starts and ends with that.

Yankees Must Dump Alex Rodriguez’s Contract Immediately

If anyone can find Hank and Hal Steinbrenner, tell them priority #1 should be to get rid of Alex Rodriguez's contract.  It is the ultimate albatross in baseball and keeping the Yankees from doing so many things, such as getting below the luxury tax, building an actual team and being free of tabloid nonsense reserved for clowns.

How Will the Yankees Change When Players Return?

It's obvious that the Yankees will immediately insert Derek Jeter as the shortstop when he returns from a broken ankle, and immediately insert Mark Teixeira as the first baseman when Tex returns from his wrist issue and immediately insert Curtis Granderson as the...hang on for just a minute.

How Much is Robinson Cano Really Worth?

Brian Kenny of MLB Network recently suggested that Robinson Cano should get $252 million after this year because he is worth seven wins per season in the stupid category of "Wins Above Replacement."  This category is almost as stupid as giving Carl Pavano $40 million over four years.  Why?  Seven wins in the regular season means nothing in the postseason if you don't hit and lead, which Cano has yet to do either.

Yankees Pick Up David Aardsma

Over the last six weeks, the New York Yankees front office has been extremely busy with trades and free agency moves. It all started with trading future DH candidate Jesus Montero and pitcher Hector Noesi to the Seattle Mariners back in mid-January for starting pitcher Michael Pineda and minor league pitcher Jose Campos. Less than 24 hours later, the Yankees announced the signing of free agent pitcher Hiroki Kuroda to a relatively cheap one-year, $10 million contract.
