Yankees Have Not Made An Offer To Stephen Drew

Buster Olney (sorry, I don't have a link) is reporting that while the Yankees have made offers to free agents Carlos Beltran, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Shin-Soo Choo, one guy they haven't made an offer to is Stephen Drew.

This news saddens me a bit, as I was hoping the Yankees were looking to replace Jeter at shortstop. But I suppose Drew doesn't fit a need, which is somebody that could spend time at third base as well. Drew has spent every inning in the field as short. Unlike Jhonny Peralta, who has spent quite a bit of time at both positions on the left side of the infield. Unfortunately, Peralta just signed with the Cardinals.

I suppose this doesn't mean Drew is off the Yankees radar, but it does tell me that he's low on the list of priorities. Which is understandable.
