There has been less-than-tepid interest from the Yankees in C.J. Wilson. Like, almost zero. That doesn’t necessarily mean everything, of course, as the Yankees have been known to lay kinda low until they just come in and sign someone, but today ESPN New York’s Andrew Marchand says that there is “almost no way” the Yankees sign C.J. Wilson this offseason.
And why should they? C.J. Wilson wants $100 million. Even if it’s affordable for the Yankees, how advisable is it? He’s good, no doubt. But the Yankees had a lot of success last year filling three rotation spots with cheap guys, so why should they throw nine figures at someone?
Wilson is going to meet with the Marlins today, so they can have yet another guy who they are going to pretend to sign. But whatever happens there, his future doesn’t look to be in New York.
