    A Couple of Yankees Trade Rumors Today

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2008/0...s-lates-2.html

    Given Richie Sexson's expected part-time role, the Yankees are in the market for an everyday outfielder to replace Hideki Matsui's bat. Barry Bonds is not under consideration. Heyman tosses out names such as Matt Holliday, Xavier Nady, Jason Bay, and Adam Dunn,

    The Yanks are also looking to add a #3-4 starter type.
    Here's the list of possibilities

    I went through the list and most of it is either garbage or going to command too high of a price for us to be contenders.

    And Heyman basically just threw out the same names that have been discussed for like the past few weeks.

    I have been a broken record the last 2 years now on how Dunn would be a great fit and sooner or later could find himself on the Yanks roster.

    Jason Bay would be ideal though.

    WFAN must be paying Heyman big bucks to be their MLB insider. He was on with Russo last week and went through trade ideas that everyone had already heard. An hour after he was on the air, Harden was traded. Heyman hadn't even mentioned him.

    Heyman always gives you what everyone else says. Never anything new. I did read somewhere though the Atl GM issuing a no comment about trading Texeira before the deadline. If this is a possibility, Cashman better go full bore right after him.

    That's what is sounds like, but there's been no word on his medical tests yet.

    Matt Kemp is the answer.

    Matt Holliday is the answer- but Kemp is a good Plan B.

    Holliday or Bay would be really great, but I doubt we get them without giving up a huge prospect.

    Then we'll have to give up a huge prospect. I'm not interested in doing that for Bay, though.

    You don't like outstanding hitters in their prime?

    Too bad he isn't an outstanding hitter away from Coors.

    If you're referring to Holliday, he's an outstanding hitter at Coors and still a very good hitter away from it.

    I'd happily take my chances with his .400 OBP away from Coors this season.

    He is Hideki Matsui away from Coors with better defense.

    You have unrealistic expectations of Jackson if you wouldn't trade him for Hideki Matsui's production from a RH 28-year old.

    Re: A Couple of Yankees Trade Rumors Today

    With Dunn and Burrell as FAs at the end of the year along with Bradley making a big trade for an OF is not a good decision. Damon should be back very soon, what is the problem with him playing left and sticking someone at DH like Betemit, Duncan, or Sexson or even having Damon DH with Gardner in left and hitting ninth with all his speed. I like Gardner better as a pinch runner though, I think he should be on the 25 next year for solely that purpose and as a fourth outfielder cause Matsui definitely can't play the OF anymore.

    Giving up Jackson or Tabata for an OF is ridiculous. These are top 25 prospects who are going to make next to nothing until they hit arb and then even then they are gonna make Cano/Wang money if they are even that good.

    Holliday's splits suck, if you can pick him up for IPK and Ohlie or someone sure but not for the real future, having 2 studs who can play the field and make no money is how you build a dynasty.

    I think Bay comes alot cheaper than Holliday so I think you focus on him, or if you get Nady that's good too, they are both very good players, Bay better obv.

    Definitely do not trade for Dunn, you can get him as a FA. Ohlie yes I'd trade him for Dunn but not IPK, that's not a good idea.

    Supply is high on corner OFs for some reason, use that to your advantage and also the tons of upper level pitching prospects the Yankees have.

    Why would a trade a potential impact CF for a corner outfielder for Matsui's production. Finding an impact CF is much more difficult than finding a corner outfielder that posts an OPS of .860. On top of that he'll cost me 15+ for the next 6-7 years.
