7 Reasons the New York Yankees Should Revisit Trading for Zack Greinke

If you have been a veteran of this website like I have, you will remember this song and dance of almost two years ago.

There were two really big pitching targets that were on the market—one via free agency and one via trade.

The New York Yankees were linked to both of them, but didn't get either of them.

The first was Cliff Lee, who the Yankees offered big-time money for, but decided to reject the Yankees offer to return to the Philadelphia Phillies.

The other was Zack Greinke, who some thought the Yankees would try to trade for after missing out on Lee, but instead was traded by the Kansas City Royals to the Milwaukee Brewers,

Since that winter, the Yankees have pieced together their starting rotation with guys like Bartolo Colon, Freddy Garcia, Hiroki Kuroda and even getting Andy Pettitte to come out of retirement.

The Yankees tried trading for Michael Pineda, but in the short-term of that deal, it's looked like a bust because Pineda has been out for the entire 2012 season with a shoulder tear.

The Yankees need pitching and they need guys to help CC Sabathia, not just in the short term of 2012, but in the long-term of their future as well.

Two years ago, I was not in favor of trying to trade for Greinke, mostly because I wanted the Yankees to get Lee.
