Personally, I love this signing. Sure, Holliday had a down year last year and has had injury issues the last couple of years, this is true. Much like this article suggests though, I believe his help can go beyond the stats he provides:

There are parallels between the seasons leading up to the dynasty of the 1990s and the current edition of the Yankees. The franchise is fully invested in their youth and are committed to seeing their young talents manifest at the major league level. They’re also coming off of a time period where winning wasn’t associated with the pinstripes...
Fast forward over 20 years later and the organization is hoping Holliday can follow that trend.
Throughout his time with the Cardinals, Holliday was noted as a leader in the locker room — and his positive presence was one of the main reasons behind the organization’s yearly success. He’s also been considered someone who has no problem helping young talent, too."
With the loss of Brian McCann and his leadership, many should welcome Holliday for not only his bat, but for his leadership.
