In baseball, its even worse because 1st round picks are stripped if a team outside the bottom 10 starts signing tendered free agents.
The Yankees roster is absurdly old, and there are no ready prospects in the pipeline. The Yankees, of course, have too much pride to tear this Frankenstein roster down and start over....not willing to take their lumps for a couple of years. But in all honesty, the way this team is operating, they'll wind up in this type of purgatory for far, far longer if things dont change.
Lets just agree to disagree.
