I recently wrote in a reply to an article that the Yankees are following the famous Abbott and Costello comedy skit of "Who’s on first, What’s on second, I don’t know is on third and I don’t give a darn is at short," and it seems like the joke will continue until the Yanks get their act together. Who’s on first, and is it Voit, Rizzo, DJ or I don’t know but he is at 3rd in the person of DJ? Who’s on second, and is it Torres or will he be traded and it’s DJ’s position? Who’s at short or is it Urshela so he can’t be at third if DJ isn’t there.
As the Yankees contemplate free agency and trades to put the pieces of the puzzle together, I wonder how many scenarios does Cashman have to go to if some deals lead to a dead end, or does he have one in his pocket as a sure thing if all the others fall by the wayside? I just hope that this thing doesn’t drag on, and when the question is asked who’s at short, it will not be the Abbott and Costello answer, "I don’t give a darn."
