Not Cashman? Are the Yankees brass pulling another Rafael Soriano type move here?
There was also an article by Joel Sherman in today's New York Post where he says that George Steinbrenner and the old Yankees brass would never pass up on the chance of getting Josh Hamilton in Pinstripes, which is very true. It will be interesting to see how this whole thing plays out.

Time to panic.
It is still early December and Spring Training is months away. The Yankees are coming off a 95-win season in which they won the division. But there is no doubt that Yankee fans everywhere are getting more nervous every day.

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

through his words and a $12 million contract offer to Kevin Youkilis,
that the Yankees were still...
This offseason has been rather un-Yankee-like. That doesn’t mean the Bronx Bombers should be ruled out of anything, though
While the Yankees have been relatively quiet thus far, even losing out on guys like Jeff Keppinger, New York is apparently still doing its due diligence on perhaps the biggest fish in free agency. According to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, the Yankees are...
The Winter Meetings will come to a close today and, if all things remain the same, the Yankees will have signed and/or traded for no one.It's been a disappointing week for Yankee fans.

The Yankees biggest news of the winter meetings was losing A-Rod to hip surgery.
A-Rod will be out for at least four to six months and won't be back until June.
Also, the Mets have signed David Wright...
