Bleacher Report Writer Makes Case For Why Yankees Shouldn't Sign Sandoval

Bleacher Report apparently doesn't think the Yankees should sign Pablo Sandoval.

In a piece published yesterday by the site, Staff Writer Gary Phillips offered the new opinion. Sandoval, 28, will be a free agent this winter, a happening that will likely end his seven-year stint with the Giants.

"As talented as Sandoval is," Phillips wrote, "it just does not make sense for the Yankees to spend that money on him considering their investment in (Alex) Rodriguez and other players who can play the position that are already on the roster. "

Phillips argued that the versatility of Martin Prado should convince the team to stay away from the veteran, whose Giants have won two World Series titles since he joined them.

"Prado can play just about anywhere, having spent time at every position except center field, catcher and pitcher," he said. "He is most comfortable at third, left field and second base. With prospects Rob Refsnyder and Jose Pirela expected to compete for playing time at second in 2015, the Yankees will have a very crowded infield."

Phillips wrapped up his post with the idea that Chase Headley would sign for less. Headley, who hit .243 with 13 home runs and 49 RBIs with the Padres and Yankees this season, started at third base for New York in the second half of 2014, often proving defensively talented when doing so.
