With A-Rod back, the Yankees don't have any interest in signing Mike Lowell as a first baseman.Why should that matter? Slappy wasn't going to play 1B. And wasn't it thought that Dumbo might be moved to first for the final year or two of his contract? Why would NY sign Lowell to a mega-deal also?
Ahhhhh, whatever. The Red Sox front office can't possibly be fooled by this silliness.
As of about 11:30 PM, this was posted on SoSH:
WBZ: Gammons reporting Yanks yank their offer.The Chokers are apparently willing go with a Shelley Duncan/Jason Giambi platoon at 1B.
WHDH: Lowell still weighing offers from the Sox and other teams.
WCVB: Yankees have 4 years 60 million deal on the table. (??)
