MLB Trade Rumors: New York Yankees Not Interested In Big Trades at the Deadline?
The New York Yankees are the biggest name brand in baseball and arguably in professional sports.
They have a flair for doing things big, and spending a ton of money to accomplish their goals.
I’ve never known the Yankees to be a bashful organization when it comes to trades or free agency, and I’ve never really seen them be skimpy with their prospects or their money.
The Yankees are a win now organization no matter the cost, and they are so good with that mentality that somehow they are able to keep re-tooling on the fly while constantly making pushes for the World Series.
Love them or hate them, it’s hard to deny that they have a good business plan going on.
That’s why it’s so hard for me to digest the latest rumors coming out of Yankees camp.
Carlos Beltran of the Mets has been linked to the Yankees, and of course this makes sense given their affinity to big-names. But, surprisingly enough Marc Carig of the The Star-Ledger has come out and reported that the Yankees are straying away from big names at the trade deadline.
Barring an injury between now and the trade deadline, the Mets' Carlos Beltran doesn't fit into the Yankees' plans, according to a person with knowledge of the team's thinking who requested anonymity to speak candidly.
Beltran has been linked to the Yankees as a possible upgrade at the designated hitter spot, where Jorge Posada is hitting .224.
According to the person with knowledge, the Yankees have engaged trade talks, though they haven't locked in on specific targets. The team has been keeping tabs on Rockies starter Ubaldo Jimenez and Astros lefty Wandy Rodriguez.
But the Yankees don't appear prepared to part with the prospects needed to swing a deal for a higher-profile player.
Apparently the Yankees are feeling pretty content with their lineup, and even more shocking it seems like they could be relying on their farm system to lead them into the future?
I’m not sure if I can fully digest this news, and if I one-hundred percent believe it.
