Yankees sign Masahiro Tanaka
The Yankees rarely stand pat after missing the playoffs, and this year is no exception. They've signed Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year, $155 million contract. Tanaka was the big free-agent prize this offseason -- a potentially dominant ace who is only 25 years old -- which likely made him too tempting a target for the Yankees to resist. The Yankees hope that Tanaka can improve a pitching staff that was 18th in baseball in ERA, and he'll be a good distraction from the ongoing Alex Rodriguez saga.
