On Tuesday Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reported that a source close to Kansas City Royals pitcher Zack Greinke says he wouldn't mind playing for someone like the New York Yankees, despite previous concerns over Greinke's anxiety issues playing in a large market.
We suggested at the time that the best thing any agent can hear is: "The Yankees are interested." Clearly, Greinke's camp wanted to make sure everyone knew that the Yankees were involved, which would seemingly drive the price up on him.
On Wednesday, George A. King III of the New York Post reports the Yankees aren't buying the idea that Greinke would play in New York.
