They say they want a bat for the bench and bullpen help, and that is true. But they can't resist big-game hunting. They tried hard for Lee, are attempting to get Haren and made a big proposal for Royals closer Joakim Soria, as well.I love the idea of Soria in Pinstripes. He's one of the better closers in the game, would fill the current void the Yankees have in their bridge to Mariano, and could fill an even bigger void left when Mariano eventually retires.
I really would like to know what that offer was, and how interested the Royals are in making a deal. I guess we'll learn more as the deadline approaches.
