A few hours ago Jon Heyman posted this on his Twitter page:
yankees, mariners now talking washburn. yanks say no on joba, hughes, jax, romine, montero. otherwise, take your pick.A little later in the night Buster Olney reported that executives from other teams said that they think Seattle will end up holding on to the left-hander. He also said that "The Yankees and Mariners spoke briefly about a proposal early Thursday afternoon, with the Mariners making a request that did not involve either Joba Chamberlain or Phil Hughes, but the two sides have not spoken since."
So that's that. Your guess is as good as mine, all I know is I hope they get him.
