The Washburn Rumors
You have probably read by now that the M’s reportedly asked for both Melky Cabrera and Brett Gardner from the Yankees for Jarrod Washburn. There’s just no way that’s true – asking for either one is crazy enough, but both? Cashman would hang up on the phone and put call block on any number from 206 if Pelekoudas actually asked for Cabrera and Gardner.
Don’t worry about the no-trade clause – the M’s or Yankees will just pay him to make that go away.
