New York Yankees team president Randy Levine said the team has no plans to trade OF Brett Gardner this offseason to clear room in center field for OF Jacoby Ellsbury or to fill another need. "One of the reasons the baseball people signed Jacoby Ellsbury is the two of them together present a tremendous dynamic one-two or nine-one, whatever Joe Girardi decides to write in at the top of the lineup," Levine said Sunday, Dec. 15, during an interview with ESPN Radio's Ian O'Connor. "One will play left, one will play center, and it's a tremendous defensive situation. So no, there's absolutely no intention to move Brett Gardner. We get inquiries about every single one of our players all the time, (GM Brian Cashman) listens, but there's no attempt here to trade or move Brett Gardner."
