No position to get into a bidding war? You're joking right? The Yankees cleared ALOT of money this offseason and have yet to spend it. It is true that they are trying to be conservative and cut payroll, but to say that they are in no position to spend is completely faulty. How exactly are they in contract hell? The Yankees could lock up Gordon right now, but that probably isn't the smartest thing to do.
If Gordon is going to set-up anywhere next year, it'll be with the Yankees. I believe he's going to close in Philly, however.
No. I am not joking. The Yankees did not clear that much payroll.
