Here’s why Yankees should talk Eric Hosmer trade with Padres

The rumors are swirling and the New York Yankees, once again, aren’t involved as much as fans would prefer. Nothing new, though. We can talk about the big-time targets all day. The Yankees could totally used guys like Max Scherzer, Joey Gallo, Byron Buxton, Trevor Story, Kris Bryant, etc. But general manager Brian Cashman isn’t one to get in a bidding war.

Yankees potential trade target: Javier Báez

Ask anybody on the streets of New York what the Yankees need, and you’ll hear a few different answers. A new manager in the clubhouse, perhaps, or a new direction in the front office that is — depending on the individual — either completely bereft of analytics or embraces new directions within the field. Two additions universally rank near the top of that wish list: first, a shortstop, preferably one with a strong glove that will push Gleyber Torres back to second base; second, speed and aggressiveness on the basepaths; and third, a fresh new attitude to shake up a clubhouse that is laid back to a fault.
