The New York Yankees outfield seems to be all but set entering the 2013 season. However, following Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe's report that the team is "quietly interested" in free agent Michael Bourn, wonder and excitement began to fill the air.
That excitement has already been tampered thanks to Wallace Matthews of ESPNNewYork.com. According to a source with knowledge, there is "no chance" the Yankees will sign the 30-year-old center fielder.
The Yankees have not made a big move this offseason and are serious about lowering their payroll. Scott Boras being Bourn's agent immediately makes this a difficult match.
But what if the Yankees were able to strike an affordable deal to bring Bourn to New York? His addition to the Yankee roster would provide plenty of benefits that would certainly improve the team going into next season.
