Yankees getting grabby with old people

The Yankees contacted Derrek Lee to see what he was up to. They also checked in with Scott Rolen, who was last seen making a crucial error in the NLDS that ended with him waving through a hanging slider. They also checked in with John Jaha, Rico Brogna, and Lee Stevens. At least, they probably did.

And as long as they're checking in with everyone, why not the best third baseman technically on the market? From the AP:

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman expressed interest Monday in the retired Atlanta Braves star as New York tries to shore up an injury decimated roster.

"He'd be perfect," Cashman said. "I'd take Larry in a heartbeat. I think everybody would."

"Larry" would be Chipper Jones, and Cashman is right: He'd fit the Yankees' roster well. The only flaw to this plan would be that a) Jones doesn't want to play, and b) he would also fit the Braves' roster quite well. A Chris Johnson/Juan Francisco platoon is functional, but Jones had a surprisingly good year in 2012. I would think the Braves would be thrilled to get Jones back. So, no, this isn't happening, and Cashman admitted as much in his next breath.

In conclusion, this is the Google picture that shows up for John Jaha:
