Even with all the money spent this year by the Yankees theirs one nagging hole that could end up hurting them. After trading Wilson Betemit it looks like Cody Ransom is going to be our utility infielder. If A-Rod, Jeter, or Cano get hurt then Ransom is going to be an awful hole in the lineup. He did very well in his brief time in the majors but that's a pretty perfect example of what can happen in a small sample size. In the minors he was very mediocore and if exposed with regular playing time, he`s going to be a major problem. They could do worse and he`s better than Betemit but if they could find an alternative it would be a great low-key move.
