"I’m thinking about Fancy Play Syndrome as I watch the Yankees do everything but get out of their own way. They can use money to solve just about any problem. The league even raised the payroll tax thresholds to make it easier for them to do so. They came into the offseason with a pretty significant hole at shortstop and five free-agent shortstops of varying stardom available. Three have signed, and the best one of the bunch is still out there."
