There are some folks out there — not really folks with media credentials or any special insight, but folks all the same, usually in blog comments sections — who like to pretend that Jose Reyes is going to be a New York Yankee at some point soon. They can probably apply their minds in a different direction now, however, because Brian Cashman is trying his best to nip that talk in the bud. Here is, talking to the Daily News:
“That’s just not going to happen. We have an everyday shortstop in Derek Jeter. And I think we have an everyday shortstop that would be playing for a lot of clubs in Eduardo Nuñez. The Yankees don’t have a need now or in the future for a shortstop.”
Watch tomorrow: there will be a story about how Cashman didn’t rule out a pan-dimensional need for a shortstop, opening the door for a potential Reyes trade!
