After missing out on the postseason for the second straight season, (the first time that’s happened in over 20 years), Brian Cashman (depending on if he’s back), and the rest of the front office, will have some decisions to make this off-season, in deciding where exactly the Yankees go from here. Now, there’s no way the Yankees are just going to lay down and rebuild, because that’s not what the Yankees do.
The Yankees are going to scour the free agent market, until they find the pieces they deem necessary to try and win a World Series in 2015. But before they can do that, they’re going to have to take a good look at all their free agent players whose contracts are coming off the books this off-season, and decide which ones are worth keeping, and which ones aren’t. So without further adieu, I give you the five guys who I believe are worth the Yankees at least making an attempt to re-sign this off-season, and my predictions for what will ultimately happen.
