Not A Terrible Idea

According to Ken Rosenthal, the Yankees are signing Brian Roberts. While the contract details matter, I am going to assume they haven’t made a large financial commitment.

Roberts used to be a great player, but injuries and age have reduced him to a shadow of his former self. That being said, he can still play a decent defensive second and he can hit LHP. Platooning him with Kelly Johnson at second won’t come close to replacing Cano, but it could result in a league-average solution or higher and that is all you can ask for.

Now they need to address the left side of the infield…..
