Yankees Offseason Week in Review


What happened this week during the Yankees offseason? Let's recap what went down:

 -- CC Sabathia will undergo a routine knee surgery this offseason. CC will have his knee cleaned up a bit and this was considered to be scheduled and not a big deal, and I believe the team this time.

 -- Larry Rothschild was the Yankees only free agent to be in the coaching department and the team has already signed him to a new deal for the 2017 season.

 -- Blake Parker and Kirby Yates were claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim while Anthony Swarzak and Eric Young Jr. elected free agency.

 -- James Kaprielian was officially added to the Arizona Fall League roster for the Yankees.

 -- George Steinbrenner has been added as a finalist for the Hall of Fame.

  1. I liked what he tried to do with the Yankees and the things he did do over the years.
    He used his own money and put Yankee money back into the team for many years. He built the YES Network, he built up the farm system fields and clubhouses.
    He loved the Yankees and spent whatever it took to win. In 35 years the team won six WS made the playoffs 18 times (including 6 WS wins).
    Only three things I didn't like about his time as owner; Raped the Farm system, tried to use the same tactics that worked in the '70's/'80's but don't work anymore and wouldn't change with the times.
    As far as I can see, my minor objections to his way of doing things are far and away overshadowed by the many things he did to make the Yankees...Americas Team.

    HoF should vote him in!
