So lets end the night with some flyaway notes around the league. -- Ex-Yankee A.J. Burnett is going to ...

Finding space on the Yankees 40-man roster

chris-dickerson

The Yankees have a full 40-man roster, but the Kevin Youkilis deal became official today and Ichiro Suzuki's deal will be complete shortly after. On top of that they are still going to have to add another outfielder, possibly another catcher, and some depth. So it's safe to say that a number of players on ...
