1. The Yankees do not have a third baseman.
2. The Yankees want cheap 1-year deals.

Can someone please explain this??

CBS Sports:

The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to terms with free-agent third baseman Eric Chavez on a one-year, $3 million deal, reports CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman.

We’re not even sure what to say, other than to ask: is Youkilis coming? Past photoshops aside, he’s a prime rebound candidate who got killed on BABIP. A one-year deal for him would be smart.

Or are the Yankees now only interested in guys who will play for free?
