The Yankees have "reached out" to Bay

Dec 15, 2009, 8:30 AM EDT

This smells more like due diligence than real interest, but John Tomase and Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald report that the Yankees are “lurking in the weeds” and have expressed their interest in Jason Bay.

At the very least this returns some pressure to Johnny Damon after a day in which some of it was taken off due to Matsui’s departure. And heck, maybe Bay freaks out a day after the Sox signed Mike Cameron and, with a bleak future with the Mets staring him in the face, finds himself suddenly receptive to a reasonable offer from a winning team.

    What with the medical issues that apparently unnerved the Beanbags after a year in which Bay was their most productive ballplayer and effectively gave them their soul as they tried to fill the crater that Manny left in their lineup (for all the good it finally did them anyway), Bay seems like the ideal Mutts solution. He will be paid an enormous amount of money to play for a team whose karma right now looks like its owners have been out in the pastures finding every billygoat belonging to a gypsy and kicking it in the balls. Larry Talbot should be so star-crossed. And he will get to play before a gaggle of rabid so-called “sportswriters” who will make him feel like one of those lost and dessicated early 19th century Royal Society explorers staggering across the Serengeti who can already smell the hyena farts in the tall grasses around him and knows what’s gonna happen as soon as he starts to crawl.
    No good deed goes unpunished, does it?

    I must say that that I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall at the Yankees organizational meetings in Florida a couple of weeks ago. The Yankees approach to the offseason so far has been very odd!
    The Red Sux seem to be attempting to win the AL East and the Pennant and World Series by locking up all the pitching. That would mean that they are trying to buy a title? Say it ain’t so Theo!!
    The Yankees have pretty much done nothing this off season except trade away needed relief pitchers and top prospects for a very borderline center fielder. I must admit I do not get it.

    Hey, Yankees are the world champions. How much do they really have to do in the off season. They will have a GREAT DH in Arod/Tex/Posada/Jeter. Take a gamble on Sheets,put Chamberlain back in the 8th inning,give Hughes another try as #5 starter and have Girardi wear #28 and get ready to celebrate in 11/2010.

    Being shorter is no sin, if everyone else around you is taller, it is obvious you would like to to appear taller too.
