This morning, Max Scherzer shocked Major League Baseball when he signed a seven-year, $210 Million (half-deferred) deal with the Washington Nationals, ending the Scherzer in Yankee pinstripes pipe dream. Truth be told: the Yankees were never in the Max Scherzer sweepstakes to begin with. Scherzer's price from the beginning was just over $200 Million and the Yankees ...

The last two weeks were a breather from the Hot Stove news, but now that the holiday's are over, it's time for the Yankees to get back to work. Of course, that didn't stop them from making headlines when they made the first trade of 2015. But while the Yankees came out of the gate ...
