We are a little over a month away from the baseball trading deadline and we've all talked about what the Yankees might do.
Most of the ideas surround pitching.
It's time to think outside the box a little here and make a bold suggestion.
The other day, I was reading a column by the New York Post's Joel Sherman, and he mentioned two names that could shake up the trade deadline next month. One was Cliff Lee of the Philadelphia Phillies, and I am pretty sure that ship has sailed on the Yankees interest in Lee.
The Colorado Rockies are not looking like a playoff contender anytime soon, and they are looking like they will be sellers next month.
Both Gonzalez and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki occupy a big chunk of the Rockies payroll, and you have to wonder if a struggling Colorado team can continue paying both of them.
Sherman suggested that the Yankees have the prospects to make a deal with Rockies GM Dan O'Dowd and land Gonzalez.
I am here to make a bold trade suggestion and proposal for the Yankees to make with the Rockies for Carlos Gonzalez.
