New York Papers Continue To Connect Myers And Yankees

New York Post columnist George King became the latest reporter to connect the Yankees and Astros pitcher Brett Myers. Unfortunately, he doesn’t think the two sides have much common ground:

Houston will listen on veteran righty Brett Myers, but according to a person with knowledge of the Astros’ plans, the Yankees don’t have a match.

The real question at this point is why the Yankees would even want Myers. He’s got a 5.11 ERA and has allowed a league-high 14 homers. Myers does have a 4.21 xFIP, so he’s probably pitching better than his traditional stats would show, but with a lot of money still owed to him. The Yankees have gotten decent work from their own retread projects like Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon.

The Astros would likely have a higher value on Myers than the Yankees have right now, so it’s no surprise that the two sides don’t have the same idea of what he should bring back in a trade. We’ll see if that idea holds up when Jim Crane officially takes over the team.
