This is what everybody is thinking will happen, but it won’t be to the New York Mets.
The NY Post is reporting the New York Yankees are in talks with the Milwaukee Brewers to get the former Mets centerfielder in exchange for Kei Igawa and Melky Cabrera.
What’s the hold up?
Deciding on who is going to pick up the tab on Igawa’s $12 million contract. After all, he was a very expensive flop.
This makes sense. I mean, the Yankees stole CC Sabathia right from under the Brewers. So why would they want to give money to them.
Make the Yankees pay…literally…for the errors of their ways.
One note, the Yankees could be shopping Xavier Nady to unload to some money from their payroll. If they do, should the Mets get him?
