Yankeetorial: As they make the final turn, the Yankees need players, not contracts

I spent July whining about Brian Roberts, which was like mocking a lawn flamingo. I hated myself. Roberts is a nice fellow whose body simply ran out of baseball games, in the same gasping, wheezing way that a keg runs out of beer.

New York Yankees fill their lineup

A few days ago, I wrote about how the New York Yankees needed to address their second base situation for the first time in nine seasons. I talked about how the Yankees can’t afford to go into the season with Kelly Johnson as their everyday second baseman. Brian Roberts should provide some type of production at the 2B position (Derick E. Hingle – USA TODAY Sports) After losing...
