One reason Yankees, Red Sox are quiet

By David Schoenfield

Our Cover It Live chat keeps getting questions from concerned Yankees and Red Sox fans on why the rumor mill is so quiet on their teams.

Here's my answer: Cole Hamels.

Hamels is a free agent after the 2012 season.

Other potential free agents after 2012 include Matt Cain, John Danks and Zack Greinke.

Save now, spend later.

That is all.
