Yankees pass on Jimmy Rollins trade

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports | Brendan Kuty: The Yankees tried to trade for Jimmy Rollins of the Phillies, but Ruben Amaro's asking price was just too high, and so the Yankees have moved on to other options.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: With Jimmy Rollins seemingly no longer an option for the Yankees, how will they react to a thin infield market?  Will they give Jose Pirela or Rob Refsnyder a shot right out of the gate, or perhaps just let Brendan Ryan be the everyday shortstop this season so they can spend big on Ian Desmond next season? | Brendan Kuty: One betting website, Bovoda, gives the Mets a better chance at winning the World Series next season than the Yankees. Are the Mets taking over New York?

CBS Sports | Jon Heyman: The Yankees are likely only willing to offer Chase Headley a three-year deal, but with the deals Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez just landed, he likely believes he can beat that on the open market.

ESPN | David Schoenfield: The way things stand now, the Yankees might be the worst team in the division.  Luckily, we can almost surely count that the Yankees current roster is a ways from being finished.
