Via Jeff Passan –
In the aftermath of Robinson Cano’s defection to Seattle, New York presented [Shin-Soo] Choo a seven-year, $140 million deal, three sources outside the Yankees’ organization told Yahoo Sports. When Boras countered asking for more money – one source indicated he wanted “Ellsbury money,” or $153 million over seven years – the Yankees pulled the offer and signed Carlos Beltran to a three-year, $45 million deal.
Asked to confirm the Choo offer, Yankees officials declined comment.
Good luck to Choo, if he thinks he can get a better deal than that offer.
