NY Yankees GM Brian Cashman did state trading Alex Rodriguez is “unrealistic” BUT is open to hear offers from other teams. Cashman also said on ESPN NY 98.7FM:
“It’s not like I’m going to hang phones up on anybody who wants to make any overtures about anything. You’re talking about realistic stuff and unrealistic stuff. I don’t think it’s realistic at all for us to be moving forward with anything but Alex Rodriguez at third base.
He’s still an above-average third baseman. … That means despite the contract that we had committed to him, that he’s an asset at this stage still. I don’t see us doing anything there. I don’t anticipate it. If someone wants to make phone calls, we’re more than willing to do all that stuff with any of our players, and that’s fine. You can run into something that way.
But listen, the sooner we put to bed any expectation or anticipation that the Yankees are going to be solely focused on trying to move Alex Rodriguez. … I think that would be false. And it would be just a lot of wasted energy on anybody’s part to be thinking.”
