08:33 AM ET 11.06 | True to his word, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman reached out to C.J. Wilson's agent yesterday. "I would describe it as routine," Cashman said of his talk with Bob Garber, Wilson's representative. Wilson, a 30-year-old lefty who went 16-7 with a 2.94 ERA for the AL champion Rangers but struggled in the postseason, is the best free agent hurler on the market. Industry insiders predicted during the postseason that Wilson, a starter for two years, could command $15 million a year for five years.

wilson has played only two full seasons, and before he was a reliever? and for how long?

November 6, 2011  10:02 AM ET

this player may be a top free agent but the price its too high, any team should pay him about 12 million per season, just saying!!
