Yankees Offseason Notes: Yankees want Ricky Nolasco??

It seemed that all everyone could talk about today was the aftermath of the Blue Jays and Marlins trade. Even MLB Network dedicated almost an entire show strictly on the trade. However, as exciting as this trade was there is still speculation and signings today. The speculations come from the Yankees. The signings? Not so much.

– A source says that the Yankees are interested in Marlins pitcher Ricky Nolasco. Nolasco has 1 year and $11.5 Million left on his Marlins contract. The Marlins confirmed that Ricky Nolasco will be the next to leave the team. If I’m the Yankees, I wouldn’t trade for Nolasco. He had one good year–and is getting paid $11 Million.

– The Yankees can put their checkbooks away: Torii Hunter is no longer a free agent. Hunter signed a two year deal with the Detroit Tigers today pending a physical which means the Yankees are now in the hunt for a right fielder since Nick Swisher leaving is all but done.

– And a tweet that I stumbled upon that I found hilarious by none other than CBS Sports writer Jon Heyman:

  1. Forget Nolasco. LoMo should be a target though. A good buy low candidiate to replace a guy that they got as a buy low guy.

  2. if jeter can average 191 hits and 86 runs over the next 5 seasons, he will have the most hits and most runs in mlb history

  3. Jim …. At the age of 43, my dad says Jeter will be retired, no way he gets 190 hits. At the age of 43 has anyone ever got 190 hits?

  4. I couldn’t care less about the Tigers getting Hunter. He had a ridiculous fluke BABIP last year and he was the last guy I wanted the Yankees to get at his age.
    I am heartbroken that the Jays got Josh Johnson. I’ve long wanted him in pinstripes.
