Yankees "Absolutely No Intention" Of Trading Gardner

The New York Yankees have once again stated that they have "absolutely no intention" of trading now left fielder Brett Gardner this offseason. Gardner's name has become a popular one for rival GM's since the Yankees signed Jacoby Ellsbury to play center field. Randy Levine puts to sleep any possibility, for whatever his word is worth anyway, that the Yankees will look to move Gardner to clear a spot in the outfield and some money for the Hal cap.

Here is a quote from Levine while on ESPN Radio's Ian O'Connor Show:

"We think he's going to be on the roster," Levine said. "One of the reasons the baseball people signed Jacoby Ellsbury is the two of them together present a tremendous dynamic one-two or nine-one, whatever Joe Girardi decides to write in at the top of the lineup. One will play left, one will play center, and it's a tremendous defensive situation. So, no, there's absolutely no intention to move Brett Gardner."
