The Yankees need at least one starter. The Mets need one. The Braves need one. Maybe the Red Sox do, maybe they don’t. There are only so many large-market teams willing to spend money.
The Yankees are, in Cash-speak, engaging all of them. Burnett is believed to have a five-year offer, Lowe a four-year proposal and Sheets a two-year offer. They definitely want one and could take two. That probably depends on what Andy Pettitte is willing to do.
