Yanks’ interest in Wigginton has cooled

By

Via Marc Carig, the Yankees’ interest in Orioles utility man Ty Wigginton appears to be cooling. They expressed interest in him earlier this month as part of their never-ending search for bench help. Can’t say I’m surprised, he’s hit .211/.302/.314 in his last 222 plate appearances dating back to late May.

    And the fact that he was never that good to begin with.

    The Yankees have to make some type of trade before the deadline, right? It’s not completely necessary, but it would seem really odd if nothing happened between now and then.

      If not before the deadline, something will probably come in August. They could obviously use a half-decent bench player and/or a reliever.

      • Angelo says:

        Agreed. I almost forgot something can still happen in August.

          I’m still, foolishly admittedly, holding out hope on Soria. I just can’t shake this feeling that Cashman is going to be ninja and get him. I didn’t think there was a chance until all this “Yankees are on his no-trade list” thing came up.

          Something about it, I don’t know, I just feel like something might come of it. Seems so out of place. It’s probably not going to happen, almost certainly not going to happen, but oh boy would I be a happy camper to have Joakim Soria in my bullpen.

    Thank god. I’ve been saying for weeks now that Wiggy was just CRAZY HOT to start the year, it was like Cervelli but he hasn’t crashed as bad.

    How about looking into Berkman, who’s apparently available now that the Astros picked up Wallace
