Yankees not chasing Crawford, Werth

The Yankees are not planning to make a hard charge for Carl Crawford or Jayson Werth this winter, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.
General manager Brian Cashman has said that the team’s focus will be on adding pitching – Cliff Lee is their top priority – and re-signing free agents Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera. 
The Yankees are content with Brett Gardner in left field, Curtis Granderson in center field and Nick Swisher in right field. 
Gardner’s emergence in particular has changed the Yankees’ thinking on Crawford, who is expected to command at least a six-year deal at $15 to $18 million per year.
“We are better with Crawford, but at that price?” a Yankees source told the Daily News. “I’m not sure it’s that good of an upgrade.”

No to Brett Gardner he just looks at call strikes and can’t bunt or hit the ball out of the infield. All he has is speed and what good is it if he can’t get on base. He couldn’t move players for runs either. I’m telling you Crawford is the primary man this season and go for that Dela rosa pitcher and maybe Dan Haren on a trade (Burnett/Vasquez….eat half of their contracts).

uh no. The Angels will not be trading Dan Haren for Burnett and Vasquez and even if that did happen, the Yankees would have to pay all of the money owed to all three of players. On top of that Vazquez can’t be traded by the Yankees since he isn’t on the Yankees. He is on the Marlins.
