Yankees Interested In Grant Balfour

The New York Yankees have a gaping hole in the back end of their bullpen and may be looking to fill it with Oakland Athletic's closer Grant Balfour we learned today. Balfour did not receive a qualifying offer from the A's and is coming off of a 2.59 ERA in 62.2 IP with 38 saves in 41 chances. The Tigers, Rockies, Angels, and Rays are among the teams interested in the soon to be 36 year old closer.

Balfour is fly ball prone and is a little too home run friendly for my liking and needs to stay in a bigger ballpark like the Oakland Coliseum to be successful. He would get blown up in New York in my opinion so I hope that we pass on him.
