Do the yankees have a plan? Right now we re looking at 3rd place if we are lucky,,, they should at least tell us what the thought process is other than cutting payroll,

Trading Granderson would potentially subtract substantially from the Yankee offense. A-Rod is expected back in mid season and I cannot see trading Granderson in order to temporarily plug a hole a third base while leaving a potential gaping hole to plug in centerfield. I hope this is all a wild rumor and nothing more.

I'm all for trading Granderson if they can get something for him. He's regressed badly with batting average and he strikes out way too much. Besides, he's a free agent after next season. It would be refreshing to see the Yanks make a deal and actually improve from it. I hated the deal for Granderson in the first place. He's 32 and he will not get any better. He's an average defensive player with an all or nothing bat. The Yanks have no intentions of re-signing him after next season so they might as well trade him now. They can't afford to sign both Grandy and Cano. I should probably rephrase that. They don't want to spend the money to re-sign both.
