The Chicago White Sox have a lot to offer, and the Yankees would be smart to see what’s doing over there. While I would hate to offer up our future, Brian Cashman would be a fool to not have a dialog with them. What am I talking about? This…
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe has a great little nugget…. read it and pay attention to those names, and the Yankees needs:

“Chicago White Sox — More than one GM has said that White Sox GM Rick Hahn is open for business on just about his entire roster. That includes Chris Sale and the rest of the rotation, Jose Abreu, third baseman Todd Frazier, and closer David Robertson.”

I gotta tell ya, We need a starter, we need a bullpen guy, and we would definitely need a third baseman if the Yankees could figure out a way to ship Chase Headley out of the Bronx. BYB Managing Editor Jeana Bellezza will have a feature on Headley tomorrow. But honestly, Frazier is a beast, and it’s something to definitely think about.
Now, could we go on without the White Sox? Sure we could. Our youth is our future… our team is slowly getting younger and over time, better. And to be honest, if most Yankee fans have patience, we will be back to our winning ways. Will it happen in 2017? To be honest, probably not, but the future’s coming.

And so, I just wanted to share those names with you. I found it interesting that all those studs are being floated out there. Hell, maybe if we get even 1 of those guys, and help build around them with our young guys… could that work? Maybe a Sale in our rotation? Maybe being DRob back to help out in the pen? Maybe an upgrade of Todd Frazier at third base? Maybe just one of them, surrounded by Dellin Betances… Starlin Castro and Didi Gregorius…and the rest… Bird, Sanchez and the like.
We shall see.
