Brian Cashman told's Bryan Hoch that the Yankees have not made any sort of offer to free agent first baseman Mark Teixeira, but refused to dismiss the possibility of signing both Teixiera and pitcher CC Sabathia.

On a related note, a "team official" told Newsday's Kat O'Brien that if the Yankees decided to go after both Teixiera and Sabathia, as well as another starting pitcher, they could afford to do so.

This doesn't really mean much as, even if we have little interest in Teixiera or only have interest if we miss out on Sabathia, what could be gained by saying that we aren't interested in him? Nothing, really. We'll just have to wait and see how it plays out.
