Not only do the Yankees believe they are out on Darvish, but the person with knowledge also said they almost certainly will be on the sidelines during the pursuit of Cuban sensation Yeonis Cespedes.
The Yankees have scouted Cespedes and came away believing him to be an everyday major league center fielder. But even that belief won’t be enough for the Yankees to
I’d pass on Cespedes. I just don’t think we know enough about Cuban baseball to think he’ll be worth signing. At this point, given the apparent cost it would take to trade for a good young pitcher, I’d rather see the Yankees just stand pat.
I’m trying to remember the last offseason that was as uneventful as this one, and I’m drawing a blank. I am still happy that the Yankees have chosen inaction instead of stupid actions, like signing a middle reliever for $36M for three years and giving up a first round pick for it.
