Talks with Ibanez heat up

Via River Avenue Blues -
Via Ken Rosenthal, the Yankees are in serious talks with Raul Ibanez after showing interest in him last month. He’s willing to take less money to wear pinstripes. Joe looked at him as a DH option a few weeks ago, and his analysis still stands. Buster Olney says the Yankees could have a new left-handed DH within a week, whether it be Ibanez or someone like Johnny Damon or Hideki Matsui.
I wrote about the possibility of signing Raul Ibanez here, and I'm pleased with this news. Of course it comes down to how much it would cost, but seeing that he's willing to take less money to wear pinstripes sounds good to me. I think the DH duo of Raul and Andruw could be pretty sweet in the 7-hole of the lineup.
