    Per an earlier post I made, the Yankees have to figure out what it'll take to keep Kuroda as long as the length isn't over two years. I stand by my revert to mean issue with Kuroda - he's not as good as his stats through July indicated, and he's nowhere near as bad as his mid-August to Sept. stats indicated. But he's still got solid mid-3s ERA and decent WHIP stuff, and just as importantly, can function in the fishbowl that is New York. Even at #1 dollars over a very limited time (a year or two), he's a must have, IMO.

    It would have been easier to detail where the Yankees are set. Very easy, in fact.

    If the Steinbrenner brothers hold to their player budget, this is when we'll finally see what Cashman is made of. Build something out of this pile of sand, and he'll have accomplished something really good.

    Three of the biggest stories of the offseason will be where these guys sign:
    - Robinson Cano
    - Curtis Granderson
    - Hiroki Kuroda

    Sorry about that. Still, the first post is yours, if you want to move the links there.

    Curtis Granderson declines his $14.1 qualifying offer, much to the Yankees delight. The gamble pays off for Cashman & co.

    Brilliant, because you sure don't want a guy who's capable of going 40/100/100 with 20+ steals. Much better to fill up that spot with Wells, Ichiro, and Co...Oy Vey.

    The Yanks appear to be sticking to the thought of re-tooling while staying under the magical $189m mark. Had Granderson accepted, which they feared he might, it would've hamstrung these plans which include making offers to McCann, Choo, Beltran, Tanaka, Cano & Kuroda. Grandy was well down on their list of targets -- and it sounds like he's not on their list at all -- but getting another compensatory 1st rounder was key.
