Less than 24 hours ago, we had confirmation that Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was in talks with two agents for two current free agent shortstops.
We speculated on who it might be, which was the obvious. We also wondered about the others, like Trevor Story. But, as we pondered on, the obvious was the right choice.
With Gleyber Torres moving permanently back to second base, it gave the Yankees a need for a shortstop. Andrew Velazquez, who started the one-game wild card game against the Boston Red Sox, was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Angles. Letting Velazquez go definitely signaled that the Yankees were in a definite need of a shortstop.
Now the question becomes, which one?
Correa is viewed as the better of the two, although Seager has the better track record in the postseason given he was the 2020 NLCS and World Series MVP when the Dodgers won the World Series a year ago.
Cashman confirmed that he has the green light to increase payroll as well, which bodes well for the Yankees trying to add one of two big shortstops.
So with the Yankees in serious pursuit of both Correa and Seager, it again becomes a matter of, which one?
And thus, we all wait.
