Via Chad Jennings, Brian Cashman shot down the rumor about the Yankees having interest in Oliver Perez rather bluntly this afternoon. “I was asked [by those] above me to look into it just to be certain,” said Cashman. “We always look at everything, but it’s not something that right now makes sense for us based on everything we’ve seen.” That’s the politically correct way of saying Perez sucks.
It’s also good to know that those above Cashman have such a keen eye for talent that they asked him to check out Perez. You can never be too sure, right?
