FROM 1-10-08 at 8:56am:

The Yankees are looking an affordable option as a possibility at first base.  Mike Puma of the New York Times reports that 31 year-old free agent Jason Lane is on the radar.

Puma points out that Lane would have to learn first base, as he hasn’t spent much time there is his career.  Lane was a late bloomer, and may have topped out with his 26 home run season in 2005.  But this wouldn’t require much of a commitment, so it makes sense to give him a look.  The Sports Hernia weighed in on this rumor today, check it out.
