Garner could be a good option for me. I have limited speed, while Garner stole 40+ last year. Plus he should in theory get a lot of run in the Yankee lineup. Of course, he has been crud so far this season. What do you think? An improvement? I'd probably drop Gomes or Abreu.

Either of those guys are droppable for Gardner. I mean if you're actually starting Infante because of an injury, hold off, but if he's on your bench as a super-utility guy he's not doing you much good. The SB and Run potential of Gardner is too good to miss - grab him.
Definitely grab him. He has nowhere to go but up, while Gomes has nowhere to go but down. I'm not big on Abreu either, but that's up to you. I've been trying to pry Gardner away from another owner in my league, so a free grab is great.
