The Yanks appear to be all done with the Major League free agent market now that we've entered the final week of the offseason before pitchers and catchers report. Per Adam Rubin's latest report, they might want to rethink that strategy and make a move for Stephen Drew.
According to Rubin, Scott Boras is looking for a multi-year deal with an opt-out clause after the 1st year for Drew. That's enough to scare off the Mets, and the rest of MLB already hasn't been quick to jump at Drew thanks mainly to the draft pick forfeiture that comes with him. Drew makes a ton of sense for the Yankees for baseball reasons, not so much on business reasons. This opt-out clause could actually work to their advantage in reducing some of that business risk on the deal.
