Cashman Shows Interest in Barry Zito
By mvyb, 10:58

The Yankees have finally shown some interest in the biggest free agent starting pitcher available, Barry Zito.
...Barry Zito was on the table last night when Brian Cashman and Scott Boras spent four hours together outside of the Dolphin Hotel.

"Cash is trying to improve his team every year and you come to the (Winter Meetings) and you chat about things," Boras said upon re-entering the hotel. "We talked about Barry, (Ron) Villone and Bernie (Williams)."

Cashman initially refused to discuss specifics but later confirmed Zito's name surfaced....

Since the Rangers have told Boras they are willing to pay the stud left-handed, free-agent Zito $96 million over six years and the Mets didn't flinch when those numbers were relayed to them, it's generally assumed the Yankees aren't going to swim in those deep waters. However, they waited on Johnny Damon, another Boras client last year, and landed him.

If you ask me, this deal won't happen. I hate to say it, but from the Yankee front office' perspective, there's really no room for Zito on the team. Look at the Yankees potential rotation in '07:
1. Chien Ming Wang
2. Andy Pettitte?
3. Mike Mussina
4. Carl Pavano
5. Randy Johnson
1. Jeff Karstens
2. Darrell Rasner
3. Roger Clemens?
Now, I'd love to see Zito on the team next year, but I don't think the Yankees are too worried about signing him. I don't think they'll go as high as the Rangers have just to bring in a guy they might not need.
But then again, will Zito want to pitch in Texas? It's a terrible ballpark for a pitcher, and he won't get as much offensive support there as he would in New York. Maybe he'll settle for less....
