The One Free Agent the Yankees Have to Sign.

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

To paraphrase a quote about the economy, "It's the pitching, stupid," and getting an elite starting pitcher is what the Yanks should be looking for. I think that the Yankees have the bats and the arms in the pen to get them to the dance floor, but to get the ring, they need more consistency from the starting pitching. I would choose the pitcher, Patrick Corbin, from the free agent market. Corbin is left handed, and the Stadium has always been good territory for southpaw throwers who start half their games there; his age is twenty nine which is not bad in the life of a pitcher's maturity, and since he was born and raised in the state of New York, I really hope that this may be a plus for him especially when it comes to performing under the bright lights on the big stage. Corbin does not depend on high heat as he has developed a slider that has been considered as one of the best in the league. Since Corbin is the one free agent that the Yankees have to sign, Cashman has to get on his horse and get him without wasting any time!
