This is absurdly early, but after the Yankees win the 2009 World Series (*knock knock knock knock knock*) they will have to replace some free agents and move on from Matsui who has been on a monster run this season. I say that they should offer him Arbitration, since he will still sign with another team, but who knows.
So here is the team that I see coming back next year.
The bench will have Molina, Melky, utility infielder. The bullpen will look very similar, but maybe the Yankees will look for another lefty reliever and probably a better setup man now that hughes and Joba are in rotation.
What do you guys think?<!--EndFragment-->
