Yankees Won't Deal Their Young Arms

Finally the New York Yankees are doing something right in upper management. Instead of going out and getting a guy with a big bat, they are going to keep their young arms, and look to the future. Here is the story from ESPN.com:

Hank Steinbrenner was clear on what the New York Yankees won't do to get Miguel Cabrera.

"It's pretty obvious which players we're not going to trade," the owner's son said Wednesday, before rattling off the team's most-prized young pitchers. "Chamberlain, Hughes and even Kennedy. Not for a position player."

As the Florida Marlins try to gauge what teams would give them for their All-Star third baseman, the Yankees are showing qualified interest. Yes, they'd love Cabrera to replace Alex Rodriguez, but they're prepared to wait for the asking price to go down. For now, when other teams inquire, Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes and Ian Kennedy aren't available.

It looks like the Yankees are going back to the ways that won them championships...if they play their cards right they can enter their new stadium with a ring ceremony.
