Alex Rodriguez and a possible Mets future

Imagine the following scenario: ‘Disgusted with his dismal performance in the playoffs and diminishing talents; the Yankees look to unload the contract of Alex Rodriguez so they can pursue a new direction.  Unable to afford to offer him the contract he feels he deserves, the Mets are forced to pursue a trade for David Wright.  The New York Teams swap players at their hot corners...

RIP to the 2012 New York Yankees

 The following obituary is one Yankees fans have been writing in their heads since Derek Jeter went down with his ankle injury on Saturday night.

Cashman will listen to offers for A-Rod

Alex Rodriguez is no longer a superstar, and while a trade is "unrealistic," all offers for the high-priced slugger will be considered, Yankees GM Brian Cashman said Sunday.

Trading A-Rod won't solve everything

Let's imagine the New York Yankees send Alex Rodriguez -- and, oh, $50 million -- to the Miami Marlins for Mark Buehrle, Heath Bell and John Buck. This probably represents a best-case scenario for the Yankees. A-Rod is due $118 million over the remainder of his contract; Buehrle, Bell and Buck will earn a combined $77.5 million during their deals. By including more than the...
