Found December 01, 2011 on Lady Loves Pinstripes:
Could the New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman be pulling a Philly fast one by secretly going after the top free agent on the market, Albert Pujols? The Yankees are one of the few, if not the only, team that could legitimately offer Pujols the money he wants; along with the stage and superstar teammates that will allow him to flourish. Even though superstar Mark Teixeira now occupies first base, but where there is a will there is usually a way. Maybe you did realize that Tex did make 11 starts at third base, logging 99 innings and committed seven errors back in 2003. This leaves the Yankees with the two scenarios. Move Tex to third, A-rod to shortstop and Jeter to the outfield…and BAM now there is room for Prince Albert. Or keep the Captain at shortstop, Tex to third and A-rod can be the DH…and BAM another way to get Pujols in pinstripes. Do you want to know the truth about where I heard this rumor? Can you handle the truth? (......)READ THE REST OF..... New York Yankees Trade Rumors...

Oh, the Joy of Baseball's Winter Meetings

You never know what you'll find.The meetings begin Monday, and according to one story I read last night, Brian Cashman is going to "feel around" about pitching prospects.
