New York Notes: Reynolds, Logan, Gardner, Mets

Earlier today the Mets introduced Curtis Granderson at a press conference. Here's the latest news out of the New York market with the Winter Meetings in full swing…

  • Yankees GM Brian Cashman spoke to several reporters today, including MLB.com's Bryan Hoch, and noted that he's been in contact with the agents for Mark Reynolds and Boone Logan (Twitter link).
  • Hoch also tweets that the Yanks are receiving many calls on Brett Gardner but aren't shopping him. Cashman said he didn't sign Jacoby Ellsbury to trade Gardner.
  • The Star-Ledger's Andy McCullough tweets that in addition to Gardner, the Yanks have received calls on Ivan Nova, Gary Sanchez and J.R. Murphy (Twitter link).
  • Cashman also said that Michael Pineda is healthy and will compete for a rotation spot in Spring Training (Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News tweeting).
  • Hoch adds that Cashman thinks it will be easier to sign a free agent pitcher than to work out a trade for rotation help.
  • Newsday's David Lennon reports that the Mets will meet with the representatives for Freddy Garcia, Cesar Izturis and Johan Santana today (Twitter link). The team sees a good fit with that group of veterans.
  • Granderson confirmed to reporters, including Newsday's Marc Carig, that the Mets were the lone team to offer four years (Twitter link).

Too me, Kuroda is the number 1. Move CC down to number 4 (where he belongs). Nova will be #3 or 4 and Tanaka #2 untl he proves he is the Yankees best starter. Hopefully, Pineda will finally pitch this year. The Yankees could use an easy time with the rotation this year.

You need an outfielder, we got an ancient one in Ichiro and a youngster in Wells. Wells will make your owner buy a team next year, or perhaps have a heart attack. Either way it may be a shot in the arm for the Orioles woes. Palmer and Thorne may drink themselves to death.

Awesome explanation, thanks Tom.

I would think Santana would still be bitter over all those games over the years with the Mets in which he got absolutely no run support. I’d be a little surprised if Santana re-signed with them again.

Meh, save the money and go after Stephen Drew.

It’s not Jeter hatred. It’s an acknowledgement that Jeter has lost a step and isn’t as valuable as Brett Gardner, a much younger player in his prime, in the lineup. He may prove otherwise, but I think Gardner 2nd gives us the best chance to win. I won’t doubt Derek, though. We’ll see what he can do first.
