In a blog post this morning, Joel Sherman of the New York Post discussed the future of Yankees starter Chien-Ming Wang. Sherman says the Yankees are not positive about offering Wang an elite free agent contract after the 2010 season (note: I believe Wang may not be free agent-eligible until after 2011). This uncertainty has caused the Yanks to "weigh trade scenarios in the past involving Wang." Sherman adds, "I have yet to talk to a Yankee official who is fully committed to keeping him long-term."
There was a time back in December of '07 when Wang was said to be open to a three or four-year deal, but Kat O'Brien of Newsday said talks fizzled when the Yankees requested Wang's agent Alan Nero make the opening offer. In a display of the distance between the two parties, the Yanks went to an arbitration hearing with Wang in February of '08 over a difference of $600K (Wang lost).
