No, the Yankees aren’t going to sign Max Scherzer

Never say never, of course, but team president Randy Levine made it pretty clear Thursday that the Yankees won’t be signing free agent ace Max Scherzer.

While speaking at a media event, Levine said “the chances of us bringing in a guy for six [years] and $25 million” per year is “virtually none.”

Levine never actually mentioned Scherzer’s name specifically, but reading between the lines seems easy enough.

Scherzer is said to be seeking a $200 million contract, but if the Yankees are out of the mix and the Tigers aren’t actively looking to re-sign him for huge money … who knows.
