08:58 AM ET 01.05 | Add Lance Berkman to the list of aging players the Yankees are showing interest in this offseason. Berkman is still undecided whether he wants to play this season but is leaning toward staying close to his Texas home should he return. Still, the Yankees are looking for offense -- without committing money to the 2014 payroll -- and have been in contact with Berkman, according to sources. Berkman will be 37 next month and was limited to just 32 games last season because of knee surgery after a surprising comeback year in 2011, when he hit 31 homers and played 145 games for the World Series champion Cardinals.

They are only interested in guys they can sign for one year, hope they produce, and then dump next year.

well that would be a rude good bye for those players though, but then again if they are unable to perform a 100% what else can be expected??

It will be that way until these silly long term contracts start strangling the LA teams.
