Yankees keeping an eye on Danks

The Yankees have been linked to White Sox left-hander John Danks for some time, with little movement on the situation. Meanwhile, Brian Cashman has been talking about how he’s made his calls, but some teams seem to be asking for too much from New York’s farm system.

This could be an example. Jon Heyman tweets that the White Sox asked the Yankees for both catcher Jesus Montero and left-hander Manny Banuelos in exchange for the 26-year-old Danks. The Yankees weren’t interested at that price, but they will keep listening with regard to Danks, who was 8-12 with a 4.33 ERA in 27 starts this year for Chicago.

For Danks, Manny Banuelos–top-rated Yankee rookie star pitcher on-the-cheap–AND Francisco Cervelli–a VERY capable and young backup catcher, who can really handle different pitchers and play excellent defense, for starting catcher, Pierzynski, would be the cat’s meow for BOTH teams, 2 B sure!!!!!!! The Chisox would save HUGE money AND greatly improve their roster in the process. ‘Seems like a no-brainer to me! And, the Bombers come-out well, too, with, like, their 8th–YES 8TH–near-top-notch starters!!!!!!!!!!!! There’ve NEEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVEEEEEERRRRR
been this well-stocked with BOTH starters AND relievers–EVER, EVER, EVER!!!!!!!!!
We could also swap middle-infielder, Ramiro Pena and maybe a couple other excellent rookies for yet another piece of the puzzle we need. NY-CHI Trade(s) this off-season is/are VERRRY PERFECTLY MATCHED, Indeed!
