Joel Sherman is reporting that the Yankees met with the Brewer’s other top free-agent pitcher, Ben Sheets, on Monday at the MLB Winter Meetings. Sheets had a breakout year this season, posting a career-high for wins and earned the right to start the All-Star game for the National League.
Interesting News: Sheets is represented by the same agent that Derek Jeter has, Casey Close.
See an earlier post on this blog about Sheets’ stats in comparison to AJ Burnett.
Update: 6:15 a.m. According to Mark Feinsand, the Yankees are ready to make a 2 (maybe 3) year offer worth $30 million.
Now that’s something I feel comfortable with instead of a potential 5 year offer to AJ Burnett.
