Here we sit, just under two weeks away from the trade deadline and the biggest name to move so far has been...Francisco Rodriguez.
The Yankees were very uneasy having both K-Rod and Soriano in the same clubhouse, fearing that their personalities would clash leading to tempers flaring and drama in a clubhouse that has already been strained earlier this season with the Jorge Posada incident.
Besides, John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman have enough trouble keeping track of the players on the team now.
Can you imagine how confused they would be if there was another guy with the "dash-Rod" nickname?
It would be a total disaster.
But you didn't come here to read about K-Rod, Sterling or Suzyn.
You're here because you want to know what the latest is on the Yankees and their pursuit of more relief help...or another starting pitcher...or a competent replacement for A-Rod while he is out with his knee surgery.
So, without further adieu, updates on a handful of players whom the Yankees have been rumored to be interested in acquiring.
