From the Seattle Times:
A recent report that the Yankees had a scout here watching Winn is not exactly correct. New York had two scouts at Jacobs Field all of last week, watching Grady Sizemore, among others, on the Cleveland club.
But a man from another club that has interest in Mariners pitchers noted that “the Yankees paid a lot of attention when Winn came up to hit.”
The New York Post ran a story yesterday headlined, “Just Winn, Baby.” It reported that the Mariners had scouts Dan Evens and Bob Harrison watching the Yankees in Anaheim. Harrison and Evans are based in Southern California and watch a lot of teams play the Angels.
Sizemore is a blue-chipper. And, he could be the Yankees answer to CF for the next decade. But, what would the Yankees have that the Indians would want? And, why, oh, why would the Tribe deal him?
UPDATE: One of my Tribe fan buddies just told me about this:
On Wednesday the Yankees had three scouts at Jacobs Field. Desperate for a center fielder, there was plenty to see -Grady Sizemore and Coco Crisp from the Indians and David DeJesus, Emil Brown and Chip Ambres of the Royals.
