Yankees, Dodgers among those vying for top reliever Joaquin Benoit
L.A needs Benoit more, but New York is in, too.
Other teams are in, as well, but it could turn into a tussle between the two storied clubs.
New York, perhaps frustrated by the thin starting pitching market for them (they never had a shot at Jon Lester or David Price), are considering trying to put together a "super bullpen," with also Dellin Betances and David Robertson.
Benoit's $8-million salary for next year shouldn't be an issue for either team.
San Diego could keep Benoit, but with at least two big-market teams involved, they should be able to get a decent return.
