Rumors Fly About A-Rod Trade
- Updated: October 18, 2012
There has been some rumors that the New York Yankees’ third baseman Alex Rodriguez could be traded to the Miami Marlins.
Via Keith Olbermann’s blog: According to the source, Loria said in his conversation about A-Rod with Levine, “Alex is Mr. Miami; it would be great if he played here for us.”
To which Levine is said to have replied, “You can have him.”
In any trade for Rodriguez, the Yankees would eat a lot of his salary. If the trade gets complete, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell could end up in New York, reports Buster Olney.
According to Bob Nightengale, the Marlins, Angels, White Sox and Dodgers are interested in Alex Rodriguez.
For now, all of these rumors false as Marlins president David Samson told Joe Frisaro of MLB.com that there have been “no conversations between the Yankees and the Marlins.”
Also, Yankees’ Senior Vice President Brian Cashman told that there hasn’t been any A-Rod trade talks with the Marlins.
However, Alex Rodriguez might accept a trade, but it won’t be easy as he can block any trade and has five years and $114M on his contract.
A second source tells Wallace Matthews and Andrew Marchand that Miami is likely the only place that A-Rod would accept, if traded.
