Bullpen Idea #1

A big issue for the Yankees this offseason will be reconstructing their bullpen, even if (and hopefully when) they bring back Mariano. With Joba moving to the rotation, the Yankees need someone for the 7th and 8th.

One idea I’d like to see brought up is Kerry Wood. He seems to be healthy and even if he were to break down, he could probably be had for a very low base salary (last year he made $1.5 million). This would be a very minimal risk for a team with New York’s resources and it would have a ton of upside. Also, Wood reportedly is close with Joe Girardi from Joe’s Cubs days. Seems like a good fit.
