Description: Jack Cust has signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees.
Insight: All indications are that Cust left his power back in Oakland three years ago. Since that was his only real asset and because time travel hasn't been invented yet, Cust probably won't offer you much in the year 2012. A crowded New York outfield (Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson and Nick Swisher) won't help.
