From Marc Carig:Pleased with what he described as general manager Brian Cashman’s “aggressiveness,” C.J. Wilson’s representative said today the Yankees have extended an invitation to visit New York, where he would meet with some of the team’s top decision-makers.
Wilson’s agent Bob Garber, who met with Cashman at the general managers’ meetings, refused to divulge...
New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has confirmed that he recently met with Bob Garber, who happens to be the agent for both C.J. Wilson and Roy Oswalt.
Yesterday we heard that the Yankees believed the price for starting pitcher C.J. Wilson was too high and it didn’t take long to find out why. Wilson is supposedly looking for a six-year deal worth $120 million, according to Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated.

This goes along with what we’ve been hearing this offseason. The Yankees are interested...
The general managers meetings came and went without any significant moves, but with the winter meetings less than three weeks away, Brian Cashman may have started laying the groundwork for future moves.
Eric Chavez has been contemplating retirement since the Yankees season ended, but he told general manager Brian Cashman yesterday that he expects to play in 2012, according to Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News.
This doesn’t necessarily mean he will return to the Bronx, but Chavez has indicated that he would like to return to the Yankees if he didn’t retire. It’s going to...
The New York Yankees' search for starting pitching entered a new phase Tuesday, as general manager Brian Cashman met with the agent for free-agent pitchers C.J. Wilson and Roy Oswalt, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

Let's round up the latest rumors on a few members of this winter's free agent class:
Agent Paul Kinzer told Jim Bowden on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM (Twitter link) that, while Aramis Ramirez has a limited market, there are at least two teams very interested in the third baseman.

Brian Cashman expects Alex Rodriguez to bounce back with an A-Rod-type season in 2012, but the GM wondered Tuesday whether the Yankees might have been better off in the AL division series with Eric Chavez playing third base.
