Around the Empire: Yankees news - 11/15/19

Mets don’t plan to trade Syndergaard; Andujar drawing trade interest; Astros allegations bring whistling complaint to the forefront; LeMahieu finishes fourth in MVP voting

Atlanta Braves v New York Mets Photo by Mike Stobe/Getty Images | Mike Rosenstein: Arguably the most exciting rumor from last winter saw the Yankees “pushing hard” for a Noah Syndergaard trade. The Mets apparently took calls on the right-hander at the trade deadline, too, and one would expect the Yankees to have inquired. Don’t expect a repeat scenario this offseason, though, as Brodie Van Wagenen said he isn’t moving Thor. Then again, it could all be posturing. No one’s available until they are.

SNY | Scott Thompson: Yesterday we noted how Brian Cashman hinted at Miguel Andujar’s positional versatility. Today we find out the third baseman’s been quite the topic of conversation at the GM Meetings. “I’m definitely getting a lot of interest in Miguel Andujar while I’m sitting down here,” Cashman explained. “I’ve got clubs asking me, ‘What are you going to do with him? We’d have an interest in him. Mark us down.’”

New York Post | Michael Blinn: Remember when the Yankees argued that the Astros were whistling in the dugout to relay stolen signs during the ALCS? A.J. Hinch vehemently denied it, even making jokes about the situation. Now, though, in the wake of the game’s largest scandal since Biogenesis, those complaints seem awfully significant.

And lastly, let’s put our hands together for DJ LeMahieu, who finished fourth in the American League MVP voting.

Way to go, DJ!
