Asked if the Yankees need to make a deal for a pitcher given Monday’s news that Wang has a partially torn tendon and a sprain of the Lisfranc ligament in his right foot, [Hank] Steinbrenner said, “It doesn’t matter. Nobody’s in a hurry to come to the rescue of the Yankees. I learned that 30 years ago.
“There’s really nothing out there, I don’t think, for anybody. We’re going to look within first.”
Asked later if the Yankees would balk at trading youngsters for a pitcher, Steinbrenner acknowledged, “It depends on who it is. But all our top pitchers who we like, our top prospects? No chance.”
But all our top pitchers who we like, our top prospects? No chance.
So, if the Yankees do trade one of their young pitchers for some help this season, does this mean that the guy they trade was someone who they really weren’t all that crazy about?
