According to Buster Olney of ESPN, super-utilityman Mark DeRosa has lowered his asking price from 3-years and $27 million down to 3-years and $18 million. That represents a average annual drop from $9 million to $6 million.
The Yankees got in touch with his agent on December 7th, but at the time his price seemed too steep for them to really have that much interest. I still don’t see a fit, even at $6 million a year, especially if he wants three years, which would take him into his 37th year, but there are Yankee fans out there who would like to see him brought to the Bronx. For their sake, I’ll keep an eye on this to see if anything develops.
