The New York Yankeesoff-season has been an unpleasant wake-up call of what is to come.
As a fan to say that my heart is breaking would be an understatement, as the new Yankee reign still talks the talk but it is all smoke and mirrors.
With the number of holes, aging and injured players and the fact that GM Brain Cashman has literally no money to spend to make the team a winner is not the kind of ownership that this historic franchise deserves.
What is even worse is that the Yankees have the means to make this team a winner but care not too.
Free agents that are good are not going to want 1-year deals, unless you are in the 40 and over club and plan to retire; or want the option to return to their homeland of Japan.
It is so discouraging and here are 9 tweets from the last few days that is just reiterating that this is really happening to the Yankees.
