Carl Crawford Meets With Yankees For Extended Period

One would figure that the Yankees would be all preoccupied with the Cliff Lee negotiations, but that isn't the case - late Tuesday, the team and Carl Crawford's posse got together for an extended meeting.

Just what they discussed is unclear, but one figures that the Yankees were expressing their interest in the 29-year-old free agent outfielder. While Crawford's market is developing, the Tigers and the Red Sox are probably out, and the Yankees may have an opportunity to jump in.

Crawford is thought to be the number one priority for the Angels, who had had Torii Hunter do some recruiting on the organization's behalf, and so the Yankees will have competition if they choose to get involved. It's also unclear if they'd have the ability to sign Crawford if they signed Lee first. If they miss out on Lee, though, they could make a very strong push, and even if they get Lee, it's possible that they could make room by trading an outfielder.
