Yankees May Be Frontrunner for Cespedes

I find myself very torn on Cespedes.The Yankees are lacking high-impact outfield prospects in the upper levels of the farm system, which could be an issue with Swisher (2012) and Granderson (2013) approaching free agency. Signing Cespedes would quash that issue immediately, albeit at a fairly high cost, while (possibly) allowing the Yankees to shop Swisher for help in the rotation...

Kuroda Open To East Coast

Interesting... The money is a lot for a middle of the rotation guy, but signing Kuroda makes some sense if the Yankees are going to avoid some of the higher priced talent out there.

Jose Reyes is going to Miami and the Winter Meetings got underway Monday in Dallas, which should mean a flurry of moves heading our way in the next few days. It's always a fun time of year in these parts, mostly because the Yankees are usually right...

Yankees’ Interest in Free-Agent Pitchers Is Not High

After getting C. C. Sabathia to agree to an extension, the Yankees are in no hurry to spend lots of money on signing — or trading for — other arms.

Quotes of the Day

Via Bronx Banter, Brian Cashman talks about the complexity of making deals today: “It’s just hard to find a match — and it feels like it’s harder now than ever,” Cashman said. “You don’t see those old-school 7 to 11-player deals; you don’t see stuff like that anymore. I think people are smarter and therefore more careful. This isn’t the old seat-of-the-pants, get...
