Yanks will probably sign somebody like Shin-Soo Choo or Carlos Beltran who, along with McCann and Ellsbury, will greatly improve the lineup. They may also go after Omar Infante or Brandon Phillips to take over at 2nd. And they'll possibly sign Ervin Santana, Matt Garza, or Ubaldo Jimenez to help shore up the starting staff (along with possibly Tanaka). They can't afford to miss the playoffs again this year (see article below).
