1. Yankees. The Astros weren't going to be competitive anyway and at least they don't have eleventy billion tied up in players on the DL. There's no guarantee that Jeter or Rivera can come back effectively at their ages, and A-Rod may never play again period. Teixeira isn't a spring chicken either.
2. Astros. They can do several things this season:
a) Find out who on their roster has MLB talent and who doesn't.
b) Grab tons of cheap waiver claims and cheap unclaimed free agent signings (Brian Wilson can use work right now) and, if they pan out, flip them for prospects to re-stock the farm system.
