Reports out of New York suggest the Yankees are back in the hunt for Pirates pitcher Kris Benson.Owner George Steinbrenner reportedly asked management
to look into acquiring Benson, who will be a free agent at the end of the season.
Presumably, the Yankees didn't scout Benson's start Saturday night when he couldn't protect a 4-0 lead and allowed 12 hits and six earned runs in five
innings. Benson, whose $6.1 million contract the Pirates would love to unload, is 2-1 with a 3.91 ERA after four starts
