C.J. Wilson is considered the best pitcher on the free agent market in most circles. Yet, when it comes to fitting inside the often hectic Yankees' universe, several Major League talent evaluators believe Mark Buehrle might be the better fit.

"If you are looking for value, it's Buehrle because the Yankees have CC Sabathia and aren't looking for an ace,'' an AL Central evaluator said of the 32-year-old Buehrle, who finished a four-year, $56 million deal with the White Sox this season.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has spoken briefly with representatives for Roy Oswalt, Edwin Jackson and Wilson, and plans to contact Jeff Berry, who represents Buehrle.
