The Post is reporting that the Yankees are not currently pursuing David Freese of the Cardinals because they still don't know how many games they'll have A-Rod for. Here's the thing: A-Rod is no longer a third baseman. It's not that he can't play the position, it's that he can't play the position AND stay healthy.
A-Rod needs to be a full-time DH, with maybe an exception for National League parks and days when the regular third baseman needs a rest. He hit brilliantly out of the two-spot, but then playing in the field everyday took its toll.
I'm not saying we need to pursue Freese per se, but we need a new everyday third baseman. If the Yanks think they can keep A-Rod at third then everyone in the organization is about as competent as the team that built Healthcare.gov, which I understand actually consisted of Cano and some of his buddies, who took the job despite their lack of coding knowledge because they love money so much.
