Several publications are talking about this Yankee bat option, and I think it all started with Jon Heyman.  Whatever man… the guys gotta start the clicks somehow, although, truth be told, it’s a great idea and it turns out the Yankees have in fact reached out about the services of Brandon Moss.  The question is, is it something they really want, or are they just checking out everything before they narrow it down.

I’m telling you… I am hearing more and more that Carlos Beltran will be the guy the Yankees will get back for a few reasons.  They’re familiar, the money dulled out will be cheaper and ultimately they know he can help them with his bat from both sides of the plate. Read BYB’s exclusive nugget on that. It’s called THAT CARLOS BELTRAN REUNION IS REAL.  But hey… back to that Brandon Moss story, right?

Jon Heyman writes: “In addition to the previously mentioned Chapman and Kenley Jansen as Yankees targets, plus hitting stars Carlos Beltran, Edwin Encarnacion, Yoenis Cespedes and Jose Bautista, the Yankees have called upon several more top free-agent hitters, including Dexter Fowler, Matt Holliday, Mike Napoli and Brandon Moss…”

That’s how it started.   Now everyone has something to say about it.  I’m not gonna go down that list. I will however give you this nugget from ESPN on the Brandon Moss line:

Moss, 33, slashed .225/.300/.484 with 28 home runs and 67 RBIs, although he struggled down the stretch — hitting just .091 over his final 110 plate appearances. The 10-year veteran outfielder/first baseman owns a career .241 batting average.”

I’d be curious to see what happens next.
