The Yankees have a ton of holes they need to fill on the roster, ranging from shortstop to relief pitching to finding a primary third basemen. However, if the Yankees are going to upgrade their roster, it's going to cost money. Obviously money is not an issue for the Bronx Bombers as they have one of the ...
