So what’s next for the Yankees?

Now that CC Sabathia is in the fold, what is next for the Yankees? This is the likely scenario:

Another top starter: The Yankees either have or shortly will extend offers to A.J. Burnett, Derek Lowe and Ben Sheets. First to the altar wins.

Andy Pettitte: With the rotation they’re putting together, Pettitte would be a perfect No. 4 or No. 5 starter. If he’s willing to take a cut from the $16 million he made last season, they can get a deal done.

Center field: There could be a trade to me made to fill this spot. Rick Ankiel? Mike Cameron? Somebody else?

Bench: The Yankees badly need help here. It’s a back-burner issue for now, although they could sign somebody like Nick Punto fairly soon.


Sorry for the delays on the blog today. As it often the case when big news breaks, it caused technical problems. I was trying fruitlessly to post for about an hour.
