Several sources told the New York Post that the Yankees have made an offer to free agent Nomar Garciaparra.
He'd be brought in to play first base, making Jason Giambi a designated hitter. Whether this would have an effect on the Bernie Williams negotiations is unclear. It's also uncertain whether the Yankees would still have room in the budget to add Johnny Damon.
