PositiveHype Posted July 7, 2005 Share Posted July 7, 2005 OK, now many of us have heard the players' names that have been floating around the supposed trade discussions between the Yanks and Fish, but there is a new name that I heard has popped up as of late yesterday. Yes, we all know that Sheffield, Burnett, Stanton, Tom Gordon, Encarnacion, and in some cases Pierre and Lowell, but the latest name that I heard is A-Rod. A couple of other sites have mentioned it and I wanted to know if anyone else heard something. Supposedly, Steinbrenner is dead set on having Pierre along with Burnett, that he'd be willing to give A-Rod and take Lowell in return as well. Does anyone know how accurate this is? Or is it just NY-based speculation? Oh, and there is a tidbit of extra speculation that in order to replace Pierre that an agreement has already been made with the D-Rays involving Carl Crawford, that is dependant on the Yanks/Marlins deal because there is a prospect on the Yanks that is wanted by the Rays, along with Marlins' prospects. Would Admin Beinfest pull of something like this without anyone knowing? Please let me know. :o Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
