You can't go anywhere on the internet that has anything to do with the Yankees and not read about Hal Steinbrenner's meeting with Scott Boras, in regards to Edwin Jackson. I was going to hold off so that Greedy Pinstripes was the only place where you wouldn't have to deal with this "news", but I couldn't stop myself.
Look, this doesn't mean it's going to happen. Is it more likely? Yes. But I don't think this is much different than when Cashman checked in on Albert Pujols. It's due diligence. The Yankees haven't done anything to improve the rotation compared to last season, Edwin is still available, so check it out. Maybe his price has dropped so far that it would be silly to pass him up.
One thing to remember here... Scott came to Hal, not the other way around. Hal was in Phoenix for the baseball owners meeting. If it were the other way around I would change my tune, but until the Yankees go to Boras or Jackson for something then I'm not about to get excited or get my boxers in a bunch.
