Yankees plan to have talks with Cole, Strasburg

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — After falling short of reaching the World Series for the 10th straight year, the New York Yankees intend to have conversations with top free agent pitchers Gerrit Cole and Stephen Strasburg.

“It’s a good time to be them,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Monday as the general managers meeting began. “Certainly we’ll have conversations from our perspective. And they’ll either lead to further ones or lesser ones.”

During a moonlit availability in a courtyard surrounded by palm trees, Cashman confirmed changes in the team’s staff, led by Matt Blake replacing Larry Rothschild as pitching coach. He said New York has had conversations with the agents for several of its players who became free agents, including outfielder Brett Gardner, shortstop Didi Gregorius and reliever Dellin Betances.

Starting pitching is the Yankees’ biggest need following their loss to Houston in a six-game AL Championship Series. Manager Aaron Boone’s rotation could use a premier arm to join a group that includes Luis Severino, James Paxton, Masahiro Tanaka and J.A. Happ.

Not to sign either of them- they wish to talk to them about a horse…..

And this is news because...?

I would think any team not named "Marlins," "Royals" or "Pirates" would plan to have at least cursory talks with those two.

Sigh. That sounds like the most romantic availability ever!

I'm sure if somebody would fall for it again the Marlins would be willing to offer a huge deal, backloaded with only about 6 million due in year 1. And of course they'd be traded before year 2.

Well, it shouldn't be, but in Yankeeland, it's because they were never explicit about interest in the two guys last year.

Hi, Mr. Garrett Cole?

Yeah?

This is Bob from the Yankees.

Bob?

From the Yankees, yes. I'm calling with an exciting offer.

You should really be talking to my agent.

Well, we've been getting a lot of interest from other free agent pitchers in your area so we wanted to let you know of this offer as soon as possible.

Seriously, you should call Scott.

But we wouldn't want you to miss out on this fabulous season ticket offer. For just $1200 each, you can have a package of 10 field-level box seats, including 3 weekend games of your choosing. And if your friend Scott signs up as well, we'll give you a 10% discount.

You misspelled "Tigers".
