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.
