Yankees to Cut Payroll to $185 Million

That's down from the $208 million they spent in 2009.

The last time I checked, that means they'll still be spend more in 2010 than any other team in the majors.

I know that there are big free agents out there in John Lackey and Jason Bay. Right at the end of the season, the talk was that the marquis names would get the big money and that no one else will. But if the Yankees are cutting their payroll, the Dodgers are in the throes of a divorce, the Cubs have had their issues and the Phillies are focusing on relievers, who is left to pursue these free agents?

Boston? The Mets? The Angels?

The Yankees still look pretty tough to me.
