I'm surprised the Yanks didn't give him a run at that price. Wang+minor prospect such as Tim Battle may have done the trick. Wang+Melky Cabrera would've certainly been more than enough.
Why? Yanks would have to pay him 10M plus and they already have Cano. He can;t and/or won't play CF. Why trade for someone like that when he does not fit the teams needs?
Besides, Clueless Brian is too busy sitting on his hands or signing downgrades to his bullpen to be concerned with this sort of thing. Right now I am sure he is contemplating the wisdom of Bubba Crosby vs Jacque Jones. Or whether he should bring back Nuclear Al for a left specialist role.
Money's never an issue with the Yankees...and I'm sure he could be convinced to play 2B eventually if he has to. Would he rather play CF for the Yanks or 2B (is he, even or is Vidro?) for the Nats?
It doesn't really matter because he doesn't fit their needs. They need a CF who can play defense. And if they are going to add another bat, it shouldn't be another hacker who doesn't get on base enough.
Wang is much too high a price to pay for a guy who won't fit any of the Yankees needs.
