BP Daily: Replacing A-Rod
Searching the globe for possible replacements for the Yankees slugger
If the Yankees decide to go hunting for something better than the non-answers for replacing Alex Rodriguez they have in their own system, there are a couple of ways they could go; shopping for journeymen or second-tier prospects blocked in their current organizations or perhaps gunning for something a little more exotic as action gets underway in the World Baseball Classic.
Jeff Baisley, Athletics: More known for his pitching exploits in college, Baisely was the Midwest League MVP two years ago, but he's slowed down a bit at the upper levels. Still, he's an above-average defender with a little bit of pop and some on-base skills, and the Nomar Garciaparra signing likely means another year at Triple-A for him. -- Kevin Goldstein
