Oh, boy! Where have we heard this before. Bob Klapisch of The Bergen Record is reporting that the New York Yankees are front-runners in the race to acquire Arizona starting pitcher Dan Haren.
The Yankees have emerged as the front-runners in talks for Dan Haren, a major league source told The Record on Friday. GM Brian Cashman is said to be mulling such a deal and could acquire the Diamondbacks’ right-hander, “if he felt like it” at any time.
At least two other teams were heavily involved in negotiations with Arizona, but at least one of them – believed to be the Cardinals – dropped out Friday afternoon. That left the Yankees and Tigers, with the Bombers said to be at the front of the line.
Klapisch speculates that the price for Haren is Joba Chamberlain. Is that a deal you would make, Yankee fans?
