The "Killer B's" are becoming a household name and Jesus Montero is ready to make his big league debut. Are the Yankees' prospects turning enough heads to warrant a blockbuster trade?
When Andy Pettitte retired, the Yankees were left with a major void in their starting rotation. Fans and experts alike felt that Cliff Lee would be the guy to come in and sure-up the shaky staff. When that didn't pan out and Lee turned down the Yankees' generous offer, the trade rumors began to circulate. Could Chris Carpenter or Francisco Liriano be dealt?
The real prize the Yankees' brass were eyeing was the 2010 Cy Young winner, Felix Hernandez.
The Mariners are far from they team they were in the early '90s. The days of Ken Griffey Jr., Edgar Martinez and Randy Johnson are long gone. King Felix is the only real asset the Mariners have at the moment. It seemed as if it would take some big name prospects and some young, every-day players to even catch the Mariners front offices' attention.
Could the recent performance of the Yankees' up and coming studs strike some interest in the Mariners front office?
