The New York Yankees and Brett Gardner… what’s next?

The MLB Winter Meetings came to an end and two of the pieces many expected the New York Yankees to trade are still on the roster. Last year’s Mariano Rivera Award winner — that’s for the best reliever people — Andrew Miller is still in pinstripes and so is Brett Gardner.

What I don’t understand is the outcry on social media by Yankees fans about Brett Gardner leaving. Just like I didn’t understand when the whole world wept that the Yankees were “lunatics” to let David Robertson walk. Let me explain.
