As the baseball offseason becomes more and more about dollars and sense, potential moves and trades could start taking on the feel of salary cap leagues like the NBA and NHL. With Jacoby Ellsbury's long-term albatross handcuffing how the Yankees go about the rest of their winter business, general manager Brian Cashman could look to bring something useful back for the 34-year-old outfielder instead of trying to dump him for nothing. Of course, that useful part likely would also be on a less-than-smart contract.
Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury for Rockies' Ian Desmond?
