No matter how many injuries the New York Yankees suffer, it seems like a certain baseball player will never catch a break.
That man is shortstop Stephen Drew, formerly of the Boston Red Sox and now a free agent.
The Yankees already have a severe shortage in the infield, with Mark Teixeira one of the players they are missing.
This has led to many rumors and much speculation about who the Yankees might want or need to fill their gaping voids.
Drew could have been one of those players. But even though he would offer a suitable and solid stop gap, it's understood that his salary requirements make him a no go for the Yankees at this moment.
It's not that Drew demands a significant pay-packet necessarily, with his quality as a player simply just not matching what he wants to earn.
As a source told ESPN, "Nobody's signing Drew... not at the money they're asking."
I guess Drew will have to wait out until after the MLB Draft for his chance.
