The way it looks right now, the Yankees are trying to sign Brandon McCarthy, but Brandon McCarthy hasn't signed yet. The reason? Well, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com has it all figured out. He tweeted this:
yanks engaged brandon mccarthy but he's popular in market as 2nd-tier option (below scherzer, lester, shields) & is waitingOK then.

In other words, McCarthy wants to see what the market will bring for Jon Lester, Max Scherzer and James Shields and then he'll most likely come to the table and negotiate. Not a bad strategy because when you think about it, many just assumed it was a marriage made in heaven between he and the Yanks.
Look, there is no question Brandon likes New York, he did well and has stated it publicly. The question is at what cost? And for now, it's business and we wait.
And why not wait and check out some of Amanda McCarthy's funny Tweets. She's always fun to follow on Twitter:

Apparently, Brandon is no longer telling me about who is calling because he is tired of me waking him up to ask questions. #freeagency
