Morning Bits: Sanchez, Catchers, Posada, Cashman, D.R.

Good morning everyone. Not a good day for sports yesterday, with the Penn State scandal, and the kidnapping of Nationals’ catcher Wilson Ramos.

Here are your notes and links:

Via Marc Carig of the Star Ledger:

— Although they knew Jonathan Sanchez was on the trade block, the Yankees never had any real discussions about acquiring him.

— “I’ve had a lot of teams express ‘Hey, if you’re ever going to do something there, mark us down,’ that type of things.” This is Brian Cashman speaking about how other clubs have been inquiring on the Yankees’ plethora of catchers, including Jesus Montero, Austin Romine, and Francisco Cervelli.

— Cashman is still feeling for the pitching market, and has reportedly requested medical information from some players, which he says is standard procedure.

— Jorge Posada has accepted the fact that if he plays in 2012, it won’t be with the Yankees. He just has to decide whether to call it quits, or put on another uniform.

— The Yankees have a large number of scouts in the Dominican Republic this week. However, they aren’t only watching center-fielder Yoennis Cespedes.

Via Anthony McCarron of the NY Daily News:

— Brian Cashman noted that the Yankees’ roster “isn’t perfect”, and will look to improve it throughout free agency.
