Davidoff: Steinbrenner leaves some wiggle room in $189M plan

Mentioned it on Twitter, but might as well mention it here as well:

I heard from a source today that the Yankees have “nothing alive” on potential trade target Mike Morse. The Yankees are still focused on finding a right-handed bat — and also working toward some minor league invitations to big league camp — but there’s no real traction toward a trade for Morse, who no longer seems to have an everyday job now that the Nationals have re-signed Adam LaRoche.

Meanwhile, down in Arizona…

Ken Davidoff spoke to Hal Steinbrenner at the MLB owners meetings. Steinbrenner left what could be seen as a little bit of wiggle room in the Yankees plan to limit spending in 2014.

“Is our goal 189 next year? Yes,” Steinbrenner said. “But only if I’m convinced if the team I see, that we’ve put together, is a championship-caliber team. … I believe that you don’t have to have a $220-million payroll to win a championship.”
