From MLBTradeRumors.com -
A baseball source indicated to MLBTradeRumors.com that the Yankees and Pirates are working on a trade that could be Mike Gonzalez and Nate McLouth for Ian Kennedy and Melky Cabrera.
Nate McLouth? At 25-years old, McLouth is just a younger version of Bubba Crosby.
So, if true, the Yankees would be trading their youngest, major-league-proven, position player and one of the, say, seventh best pitching prospects in their system, for a closer of limited experience who had a seriously sore arm last season (when he closed for the first time) and a Four-A back-up outfielder.
Aw, shucks, why doesn’t New York throw-in a half-dozen Lamborghini’s and an original copy of the Declaration of Independence too – just to further sweeten the pot for the Pirates?
