Yanks called about Rollins, nothing there

The Yankees reportedly talked to the Phillies about a potential trade involving shortstop Jimmy Rollins, according to ESPN’s Jayson Stark, but the asking price was too high for the Yankees’ liking.

Rollins, who turns 36 on Thursday, posted a .243/.323/.394 batting line with 17 home runs and 55 RBIs over 138 games with the Phils this past season. It’s widely known that the Phillies are willing to listen to offers for just about anyone this offseason, but it does not appear as if Rollins will be the Yankees’ next shortstop.

As for Jeter’s replacement, the Yankees continue to leave no stone unturned, though MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reports that a reunion with free agent Stephen Drew is very much a possibility.

The Phils expect too much for everyone. I wouldn’t bother dealing with them. Drew will do adequately at the plate with a full spring.

Please, not Rollins.

Rollins does not need to come to the Yankees we don’t need to get older we need to get younger..
