The Yankees are considering signing the 32-year-old Nomar Garciaparra to play first base. While GM Brian Cashman and agent Arn Tellem refused to confirm or deny an offer has been made by the Yankees to Garciaparra, several industry sources indicated an offer has been made. -- New York Post

Anna Benson made a personal plea to Mets CCO Jeff Wilpon to keep her husband in Flushing -- and yesterday afternoon Kris Benson reiterated his desire to stay a Met during an exclusive interview with The Post. -- New York Post

GM Omar Minaya may involve the Mets -- at least as a third team -- in any discussions about Miguel Tejada in the hopes of finding an "outside the box" way to get Manny Ramirez to Shea, a baseball executive suggested last night. -- New York Daily News

Mets sources have consistently said Ramirez does not fit into their budget without salary being absorbed by the Red Sox. A deal would potentially have to include center field prospect Lastings Milledge and Aaron Heilman. While Heilman has drawn widespread interest from other clubs, parting with him would further hurt a Mets bullpen that already has lost setup man Roberto Hernandez. -- New York Daily News

Javier Vazquez, who has piqued the Mets' interest, may be on the verge of getting shipped to the Windy City. A baseball insider suggested the White Sox are the most likely destination for the Diamondbacks pitcher, possibly leading to a trade involving Jon Garland (a free agent after the 2006 season) or Jose Contreras. -- New York Daily News

The Mariners (and to a lesser extent, the Tigers) are believed to have interest in Yankees pitcher Carl Pavano. The Yankees could use Pavano as a chip to upgrade their bullpen -- they have discussed righty Julio Mateo -- instead of asking for Seattle center fielder Jeremy Reed. -- New York Daily News

Jorge Posada will not play in next spring's World Baseball Classic, and Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said yesterday that Posada was one of "many" players whose participation was objected to by the team. Cashman declined to name others; Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams (expected to re- sign with the Yankees) and Robinson Cano have been announced as commitments to the inaugural event in March. -- Newark Star-Ledger

The Mariners probably have sent feelers out regarding Adam Dunn. The Mariners might have to first trade for surplus with one team, then spin that trade into a deal for a guy like Dunn. -- MLB.com
