Sounds great for the Twins, but the Yankees know that Capps would get destroyed with that short porch at Yankee Stadium.
I would think the Yanks would put more value on a pitchers ability to get outs, as oppossed to 'getting after it' and 'battling his tail off'.

The Yankees are not so desperate to trade for a true middle reliever and make him Mariano Rivera's successor.
If there was such a transaction, I would think they'd be moving some of their current relievers around and Capps would slot in somewhere other than closer. And of course that's a big if at the start of that first sentence.
