“No Thanks, Yankees”

Friday, November 9th, 2012

That’s what Swisher, Soriano and Kuroda said to the Yankees and their contract offers. I can’t blame any of them (or their agents) for seeking more money/years elsewhere, but – and clearly I’m biased – isn’t playing for the Yanks in New York on the biggest stage for a team that will undoubtedly make the playoffs every postseason enough of reason to accept the offers?

I get that Swisher has lots of options and that Soriano wants to be a closer, but Kuroda?

It will be interesting to see how Cashman fills the gaps.

Also, very sad to read about the death of former Yankees GM Lee MacPhail, as it always is when baseball legends pass away.
