Hal strikes again?

The Yankees contacted the Royals about Brian Bannister—who has taken steps in the right direction this year—however, according to Jayson Stark and Buster Olney (ESPN), the talks didn’t progress because the Yankees asked the Royals to pay the remaining $650,000 that’s left on Bannister’s contract. Strange development, huh? The Royals were probably insulted by that offer. This is how the Yankees may operate from now on, though, especially with Hal Steinbrenner behind the wheel.

  1. I like it! If we are taking your trash and your getting prospects pay for it.

  2. I know this isn’t the forum to address this but I hope that game tying blast off of Swisher’s bat with 2 outs in the 9th will quiet all the haters saying he should be traded or benched!

    • I love Nick Swisher. He’s a good player that gets a bad rep. That’s all.

  3. I Can’t believe the Yanks would balk at $650,000, there’s gotta be more to the story than we’re hearing.
