  1. Doesn't make much sense not to kick the tires…a lefty who is a 2/3ish type arm when they currently only have a 1 (CC), a 3 (Nova), and like 6 4/5ish (AJ, Phil, Freddy,etc.) arms. Garza, Cain, & JJ are the type guns they need, but anything less than that, well they might as well stay within (AAA).

    A 4/60 contract would make sense, a 100M$ deal is insane as Doc, The King or most of the CYA caliber arms will never see that coin. Crawford and Werth were extremely over-market and poor decisions and this two-year starter (without major stats, exposure or awards) would make those contracts look good.

  2. Maybe Cashman is tired of player agents using the Yankees to jack up offers from other teams

  3. 10 homers in 40 post season innings heading into the World Series. He posts good nombers playing 18 games apiece against the weak hitting AL West (other than the Rangers who he plays for), but in the offseason, facing good hitters every night he gets rocked. How does that look against the AL East? Wake up, people! Cash is smart to pass on him.

    • Wilson started 7 games against the A.L. East in 2011 (facing every team but the Orioles), struck out 46 batters, walked 18, and allowed 18 runs (though he allowed 7 runs in one game against Toronto) in 45.2 innings last year.
