The New York Yankees are a team that will switch plans at a moment's notice, a team that will appear to be lost or losing badly and then will suddenly steal the show. That may be exactly what's happening this offseason.
The Yankees will act like they're in cost-saving mode, then out of nowhere appear with $100 million, or close to it, and win the winter. Don't bet against them now.
After expressing consternation about their payroll for weeks, the Yanks may wind up trading Randy Johnson, then spending the very $16 million that was targeted for Johnson on Barry Zito for 2007, plus $16 million a year for five more years after that.
