• Olbermann: Yanks & Marlins Discussing A-Rod Trade

    The details

    The New York Yankees have held discussions with the Miami Marlins about a trade involving their third baseman in crisis, Alex Rodriguez.

    Sources close to both organizations confirm the Yankees would pay all – or virtually all – of the $114,000,000 Rodriguez is owed in a contract that runs through the rest of this season and the next five. One alternative scenario has also been discussed in which the Yankees would pay less of Rodriguez’s salary, but would obtain the troubled Marlins’ reliever Heath Bell and pay what remains of the three-year, $27,000,000 deal Bell signed last winter.

    None of the sources could give an indication as to how serious the discussions have already gotten, but one of them close to the Marlins’ ownership said he believed the trade made sense for both sides, and would eventually be made in some form.

    David Samson and an aging A-Rod…

    …now, that will be a fun combination.

      Sure would make for good TV on the Franchise.

      On a serious note, it’s a shame that the Marlins ended that season early. It’s a really interesting series.

      That means Rodriguez is getting traded :P

      Rodriguez is a 10-5 guy, so he’d have to consent to the trade. It may be to the point where he just may say “to hell with it” and agree to the trade.

      But Heath Bell?
