Yankees To Pass On Gagne?

Jon Heyman wrote yesterday that the Yankees appeared to be the frontrunner for Texas closer Eric Gagne, given the Yanks’ need and Gagne’s lack of veto power.

However, today Dan Graziano of the Newark Star-Ledger says the Yankees’ involvement on Gagne is exaggerated.  Apparently the Rangers wanted Melky Cabrera in return.  Joba Chamberlain has been switched to relief at Triple A; he could be 90% of Gagne without the cost.
