New York Yankees fans were left wondering what the team was doing as two of the top free agents were reportedly taken off the market on Monday.

Max Scherzer was the first to go as he was set to finalize a deal with the New York Mets as Corey Seager agreed to a massive contract with the Texas Rangers. The Yankees also lost out on signing Starling Marte, Marcus Semien, Jon Gray, Robbie Ray and Justin Verlander, leaving only a few options left to really bolster their roster.
