Yankees Weighing A Run At Drew

If you thought the New York Yankees were done this offseason after signing Japanese righthander Masahiro Tanaka to a seven year, $155 million dollar deal and bringing their 2014 Winter Shopping Spree total to almost a half-billion dollars, think again.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is reporting that now that the Yankees have breached the $189 million luxury tax threshold, they’re weighing whether or not to go for it all and pursue free agent Stephen Drew. Of course they are…

“The Yankees have spent $470 million already this winter, but there doesn’t appear to be a precise limit now that the luxury tax threshold has already been surpassed — and that’s very likely especially true when it comes to Red Sox players. Although the Yankees apparently aren’t quite a bottomless pit of cash, a possible run at Drew “depends on the price” according to a person familiar with their thinking.”

I guess that at this point, if you’re going to get zapped anyway, you might as well make it count and go all the way. As a Mets fan I wouldn’t really understand how that works.
