The New York Yankees made two big signings on Monday, locking up sluggers Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson through next season.
While these two signings came as no surprise -- even though Cano and Granderson struggled mightily in the postseason -- the biggest news of the New York offseason may come from another aging star.
Alex Rodriguez had a miserable postseason, first he was flirting with fans
during an ALCS game and then reports came out that he was being shopped
around for a potential deal with the Marlins after the season.
But on Monday, manager Joe Girardi tried to smooth the waters with the third baseman, calling him to discuss his options for 2013 according to Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York. He is owed $114 million -- minimum -- from the Yankees over the next five years, and his contract contains a full no-trade clause.
A-Rod hit .120 this postseason, and would need to approve any deal before being shipped out of the Bronx.
