08:09 AM ET 12.09 | Albert Pujols in the Bronx? The Yankees never feigned even a glimmer of interest in fitting Albert Pujols for pinstripes, but the slugger's agent did reach out to general manager Brian Cashman just to make sure. Cashman learned of Pujols' monster contract with the Angels via text message during Thursday's Rule 5 Draft, and he said that Pujols' agent, Dan Lozano, touched base early in the process on his client's behalf. "I said no; I gave it a nice, respectful no," Cashman said. "We've made our commitments, we have guys we're committed to, and so ... even though you can say he can fit on anybody's club, realistically our money is spent in those directions. How do you add that with our commitments? You just can't."
