For the second straight season the New York Yankees failed to make the playoffs, which is reason enough for Yankee fans to riot, loot, and destroy everything in sight. This just in: Rob Thomson has just been seen rushing out of the city. After backing up the truck for Masahiro Tanaka, Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann, and even Carlos Beltran, this team once again failed to play in October, and the closest we got to playing in a playoff game atmosphere was Derek Jeter's final home game, the magical game winning hit in his last at-bat game. Now that this team has unfortunately hit the offseason a lot earlier than they would have wanted to, and aside from extending Brian Cashman which appears likely, what is the first move this team should make in order to improve for the 2015 campaign?Brandon McCarthy anyone? McCarthy might be the first domino that falls as he pitched very well for the Yankees after being acquired at the trade deadline. This might depend on whether Hiroki Kuroda decides to hang it up or play in Japan as McCarthy would fit nicely in the Kuroda role: a solid, ground ball pitcher that will keep the team in every game. Plus, McCarthy and his wife make a fantastic team and who wouldn't want to have that pair on your side? On the other side of things, the hitting was the problem all of 2014, so the Yankees might look to add some offense first. Somehow.
What do you think is the first move the Yankees need to make this offseason? What move do you think they will make first?
