One of the Yankees priorities this off season is pitching. When it comes to high profile free agent Roy Oswalt though, the bombers aren't interested.

Roy Oswalt is a big free agent this offseason, and normally when a name like his comes up one of the first teams to go after a free agent like him would be the New York Yankees.  Right now though, the Yankees aren't interested in the starting pitcher.
