We all knew this Yankees offseason was going to be a bit longer than usual, but it’s been every bit as quiet as expected so far. Aside from the Joe Girardi contract and the bits and pieces coming out of the Alex Rodriguez hearing, there hasn’t been much real action for the Yankees. Really can’t do much until the World Series is over.
So, I guess the good news is that the World Series starts on Wednesday. That means we’re getting closer to the real winter action.
