Yankees probably out on Roy, may be in on Myers

The New York Daily News' Peter Botte has a new article up on the Yankees' plans to replace the injured Andy Pettitte. Short answer: It's Sergio Mitre's to lose.

Planning on making a run at (Cliff) Lee in free agency this offseason, the Yankees aren't expected to pursue Houston's Roy Oswalt, who is owed $16 million for next season and has a $16 million option with a $2 million buyout for 2012...

...Another name that might intrigue the Yankees is Houston's Brett Myers, who is having a strong bounce-back year for the Astros and could be used either in the rotation or in the bullpen.

GM Brian Cashman:
"Right now it's pretty quiet, but it's still early. There have been conversations with teams, but I don't see them leading to anything right now."
