Alex Rodriguez is injured and will miss a few weeks at the beginning of the season.  The Yankees' option to replace him?

Cody Ransom.

Any Yankees fan would prefer David Wright over Ransom, Wright?

However, we all know that Wright plays on the wrong side of New York.  So, how will the Yankees find the Wright trade for Wright?

The Mets need a second baseman, an OK starter, and possibly an outfielder.  The Yankees can supply that.

So, who should the Yankees trade?

Robinson Cano, Phil Hughes, Andrew Jackson, and another minor league kid—this for Wright.  The question is, can the Yankees replace the guys being traded off?

Cano is replaced by Wright.

Hughes is replaced by Ian Kennedy.

Jackson is not replaced.

The infield would look like this:

  • 1B: Matt Texiera
  • 2B: Derek Jeter:
  • 3B: Wright
  • SS: Rodriguez
  • C: Jorge Posada
