Whoever thought this one up needs to put down the pipe.
The Yankees aren't dealing A-Rod, nor could/should they. He's one of the best players in the game, and in baseball history. A-Rod will be one of the centerpieces for the Yankee roster for a long time.
Plus, even if I were to entertain the ridiculous notion that the Yankees would be shopping him around, nobody would eat his contract. Plus, you couldn't get enough in return to make it worth it, unless you turned A-Rod into a top pitcher, like a Santana type.
Makes absolutely zero sense as an actual trade, even less sense when you consider the money swap, and the least sense when you consider the fact that the Yankees would not trade arguabley the best player in the game.
