Here we are. The World Series is over. The offseason has arrived. Only one team and fanbase are happy. The focus officially shifts to 2022.
The angriest and most frustrated of the bunch? New York Yankees fans. Without a doubt. The 2021 season was a letdown by every possible metric and anything close to the same will not be accepted next year.
General manager Brian Cashman doesn’t have to revamp this roster or spend $100 million for 2022 alone, but moves do need to be made. Some sort of facelift must occur, whether it’s adding new personalities or different characteristics the roster lacked. The talent is there. Just needs to be tinkered with.
So what’s the buzz regarding the offseason so far? What do we know? What do we want? What more is there to analyze or dive into? We’ve got you covered in every corner.
