Yankees Offense is What the Yankees Offense is

Chad Jennings of the Yankees Lohud blog took a look at the best of what's rest on the free agent market as far as positional players go and it was a pretty eye opening read if you haven't read it already. The free agent market for positional players is looking pretty barren right now and I cannot see a single player that would or could upgrade over what the Yankees currently have. Let's see if you agree:

RF Ichiro Suzuki
SS Everth Cabrera
CF Colby Rasmus
LF Ryan Ludwick
1B Lyle Overbay
DH Jonny Gomes
2B Rickie Weeks
3B Gordon Beckham
C Geovany Soto
C John Buck
INF Kelly Johnson
OF Eric Young Jr.
UT Donnie Murphy

To me, in my personal opinion, the only real every day player here is Colby Rasmus. Rasmus comes with his own set of concerns and question marks which really drives the point home that the Yankees offense is what the Yankees offense is, for better or worse.

*Note Yoan Moncada has not been cleared and neither has Hector Olivera so they have not been included in this list.
