Cashman said that the Yankees are interested in retaining Marte and could sign him to a new deal after they decline the option.As for Bobby Abreu, I spoke to one of his agents today, Chris Leible. They have had no conversations with the Yankees whatsoever since the season ended. They believe Abreu can get – and should get – a three-year deal. Abreu will be 35 when next season starts and the Yankees are unlikely to bring him back for three years.
See, Cashman is not going to let Marte walk away if he is healthy after trading away young talents for him and Nady.
As for Abreu, his defense is getting a point that hurt us. No to mention he is not getting any younger. I won't bring him back for more than two year deal. The last thing we need is another aging verteran needs DH spot.
