Ellsbury And Drew Are On Evil Empire's Radar

After one of the most embarrassing years in Yankee history (e.g., no postseason appearance, A-Fraud eruptions, a Red Sox World Championship), the wounded beast is sending out signals that it will shoot for the moon in 2014. The Evil Ones have been recently linked to Matt Garza, Carlos Beltran, Shin-Soo Choo, Brian McCann and Japanese hurler Masahiro Tanaka. Now (according to's Jon Heyman) they are also going after at least two Red Sox free agents—Jacoby Ellsbury and Stephen Drew. Their incumbent shortstop (Derek Jeter) was just signed to a one-year extension, but his recent injury history would make Drew a smart signing. Their current center fielder (Curtis Granderson) has been strongly rumored to be headed off to his hometown Chicago White Sox. Of course, The Bronx Embalmers also have to deal with the impending free agency of Robinson Cano.
