It’s been a real tough winter for Kyle Lohse. With most teams starting either their Grapefruit League or Cactus League schedules this weekend, the Scott Boras client is still without a home for the 2013 season. Why is he still unsigned with Opening Day almost a month away? It’s certainly not because of his recent performance.
The New York Yankees have been employing a different off-season strategy over the last couple of years, and I’m curious to find out whether or not they’ll let Robinson Cano leave via free agency next winter. MLB Trade Rumors has kept us up-to-date on the latest news regarding the situation, but it certainly doesn’t look like the Scott Boras client is willing to give a hometown discount to the Bronx Bombers. It’s tough to blame him, especially after watching New York give Alex Rodriguez a 10-year/$275 million deal heading into his age-32 season.
