A-Rod to Yankees?
Now itÃ¢€™s the New York Yankees who are trying to trade for Alex Rodriguez.
The American League champions and the Texas Rangers were closing in Saturday on a deal that would bring A-Rod to the Bronx for second baseman Alfonso Soriano and a player to be named, a pair of high-ranking baseball officials said.
Newsday reported that the two teams have agreed in principle to a deal, and is contingent on a few details remaining.
I should have included this from lower in the piece:
Rodriguez, the AL MVP, would be moved from shortstop to third base by New York, seeking to fill the hole created when Aaron Boone hurt a knee last month in a pickup basketball game, an injury that will require surgery. Derek Jeter, the YankeesÃ¢€™ captain, would remain at shortstop.
