This is Derek Jeter’s last year. And, it should be Brian Roberts last season.
So, who plays SS and 2B for the Yankees in 2015? Brendan Ryan and Yangervis Solarte?
There’s no one in the farm system ready to step in at either position. (No shocker there.) And, there are not many, if any, trade chips in the minors for the Yankees that will net a quality keystone player in a trade.
Or, to the Yankees just open up the checkbook and sign Asdrubal Cabrera and Jed Lowrie after this season?
This – if not earlier – is the time to get a plan in place, right?
