I got an interesting variance in responses after posting the news of Brett Gardner's latest elbow setback on The AB4AR Page last night. There were calls for the Yankees to get more involved in the trade market (in a big way or small), calls for them to focus on re-signing their own free agents, and my personal thought that they don't really have to do either. It's not clear what direction they are going to take, but what is clear is that the Yankees are going to react in some way to this latest setback. They were in "wait and see" mode again, but they've waited and they've seen that Gardner is no longer an option to be counted on. So what route are Cash and Co. going to take to address this issue? Let's review the options.
