The New York Yankeesoff-season has been an unpleasant wake-up call of what is to come.
As a fan to say that my heart is breaking would be an understatement, as the new Yankee reign still talks the talk but it is all smoke and mirrors.
With the number of holes, aging and injured players and the fact that GM Brain Cashman has literally no money to spend to make the team a winner is not the kind of ownership that this historic franchise deserves.
What is even worse is that the Yankees have the means to make this team a winner but care not too.
Free agents that are good are not going to want 1-year deals, unless you are in the 40 and over club and plan to retire; or want the option to return to their homeland of Japan.
It is so discouraging and here are 9 tweets from the last few days that is just reiterating that this is really happening to the Yankees. (more…)

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez may need a hip operation that would jeopardize his start to next season, ESPN.com reported Monday.

WHO'S THE BOSS?
Yankees GM Brian Cashman reportedly lacked the authority to make any offers to free agents at the winter meetings without consulting team ownership first.
Alex Rodriguez appears headed for left hip surgery and is expected to miss part of the 2013 season, a major-league source confirmed to FOXSports.com.
Rodriguez is likely to undergo surgery in January, with a three- to six-month recovery thereafter. The procedure won't occur immediately because Rodriguez must first go through a prehabilitation regimen.

The Yankees might be earning headlines for their recent infield problems, but what has snuck in under the radar is New York’s need to shore up its outfield as well.
Cody Ross and Scott Hairston might change that, according to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, who says the Bronx Bombers are interested in the two as right-handed hitting outfield options.
While the Yankees are seemingly...
The third base market continues to clear. Eric Chavez is now off the market, as the Diamondbacks signed the veteran to a one-year, $3 million deal Wednesday.
As the contract suggests, Chavez is unlikely to be a full-time player in Arizona. However, given the myriad struggles the club experienced at third base last season, we can expect Chavez to play a significant role. He hit .281...
