An almost rumor…
All I gots ta say is that Herman was one lucky fella. Mrs Muster could scare me to bed any day.
When you don't have to lose any young talent, and you are only paying for 20% of a players season, it would be nuts for a monied team heading for the PS, not to try and improve, regardless of how 'pressing' or not a move might be.
Aside from a poor player or a very expensive salary dump, I can't see too many teams letting the Yankees improve. I don't think it's a spoken collusion, but I don't think any team wants to feed fresh meat to the monster.
