Lady Loves Pinstripes:
Could the New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman be pulling a Philly fast one by secretly going after the top free agent on the market, Albert Pujols?
The Yankees are one of the few, if not the only, team that could legitimately offer Pujols the money he wants; along with the stage and superstar teammates that will allow him to flourish.
Even though superstar Mark Teixeira now occupies first base, but where there is a will there is usually a way.
Maybe you did realize that Tex did make 11 starts at third base, logging 99 innings and committed seven errors back in 2003.
This leaves the Yankees with the two scenarios.
Move Tex to third, A-rod to shortstop and Jeter to the outfield…and BAM now there is room for Prince Albert.
Or keep the Captain at shortstop, Tex to third and A-rod can be the DH…and BAM another way to get Pujols in pinstripes.
Do you want to know the truth about where I heard this rumor?
Can you handle the truth?

AROUND THE WEB
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was discussing the rotation with Chad Jennings of the Journal News and specifically was talking about how they’ve been able to fill from within over the past couple of years. He used Phil Hughes in 2010 and Ivan Nova in 2011 as examples, seems he forgot Joba Chamberlain in 2009 but that’s another story.
The point is that Cashman expects...
There was also this related bit of info from Chad Jennings: Brian Cashman was asked today whether the new collective bargaining agreement will impact his pursuit of international free agents this winter. Teams are about to pay a premium when they spend big on the international market — and there are some premier international free agents out there — but Cashman wouldn’t...
Via Chad Jennings of the Journal News:
“I’m going to do the same things but focus more on left-handed, using the whole field,” Mark Teixeira told Jennings before Wednesday’s March of Dimes luncheon. “I looked at everything at the end of the season, I went through my entire season. I need to hit more singles left-handed. That’s the fact of the matter. Right-handed...
The Yankees met with the agent for C.J. Wilson back in the middle of November and they left with both sides looking to meet again before the Winter Meetings.
Now it looks like the Yankees have lost interest in what Wilson’s agent has to say and has turned down his request to meet with the team again, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York.
Wilson’s agent, Bob Gerber...
The first time we heard his name, Yoenis Cespedes was attached to the Yankees in a rumor. If Brian Cashman is interested him though he has done a good job keeping it under wraps though. Here is the latest on Cespedes:
In an article by Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, he suggests it could cost at least $50 million to sign Cespedes.
Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported that it is still...
Yankees general manager hopes to repel down Connecticut office building alongside Red Sox manager
New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman isn’t wasting any time introducing new Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine to the oldest rivalry in baseball. In the spirit of the holidays, Cashman, who practiced rappelling down a 22-story building in preparation for “Heights & Lights” event this Sunday in Stamford, Connecticut, challenged Valentine to join him in next...
It didn't take long for Yankees general manager Brian Cashman to verbally confront the Red Sox's new manager. "I publically challenge Bobby Valentine to join me on the building," Cashman said with a smile Friday morning. "Landmark Square, first week of December, 2012. Be there."
You never know what you'll find.The meetings begin Monday, and according to one story I read last night, Brian Cashman is going to "feel around" about pitching prospects. He said the Yankees do not need Albert Pujols, which I find reassuring. (George Steinbrenner would have offered Pujols Central Park.)Meanwhile, Bobby Valentine is headed to meet David Ortiz. "...
BOSTON’S GAIN might be Mark Teixeira’s loss.
Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman had challenged the new Red Sox manager, Bobby Valentine, to a little friendly rappelling.
Mark Teixeira could be looking for a new place to hit when he starts polishing his swing after the holidays. In past Januarys the switch-hitting Yankees first baseman has worked out at Bobby Valentine’s Sports Academy in Stamford. However, with Valentine managing the Red Sox and being a regular...
