Brian Cashman was just on the Dan Patrick Show, and he was asked whether C.J. Wilson is at the top of his offseason wish list.It's rare for Cashman to talk like that, but with this free agent class, he's really just stating the obvious.
“I’d say it’s fair to say C.J. Wilson is probably the best pitcher on the marketplace right now since Sabathia’s been taken out and retained here,” Cashman said. “I don’t think it’s a stretch to tell anybody that he’s the most attractive candidate.”
Cashman cautioned that putting Wilson at the top of the list is strictly because of performance and talent. It does not take into account the contract Wilson might be after.
“You have your priority list and how it looks,” Cashman said. “But then it gets rearranged by cost analysis.”
Cashman also said in the interview that the Yankees are not interested in Albert Pujols.
In our circumstances, our roster, he doesn’t fit… It’s not an efficient way to try to allocate your resources.”
