It's getting close MLB Trade Deadline so it's just a constant shit storm of trade rumors. MLB Trade Rumors has about 4050 posts a day. So here's what I've been hearing through the grapevine.
In an effort to solidify their pitching staff the Yankees have been in the market for a pitcher with a solid track record but have been very reluctant to give up their best farmhands or major league players in a such a deal. Well, they just might have found the team to do so in division rival Boston.
The Yankees are searching for a pitcher with terrific postseason numbers and the rumored pitcher has these numbers, an undefeated 3-0 record in the World Series for Boston all while pitching to an incredible 0.87 ERA. Now, I've promised my sources that I won't reveal the name but I think you should be able to deduce who I'm talking about.
In order to acquire this pitcher who will likely improve the Yankees drastically after the trade the Red Sox were willing to trade the player simply for cash relief on future investments. The White Sox came in with an offer of one their likely to be future Hall of Famers and a significant amount of cash in their own right, but the Yankees being the financial juggernauts have blown the White Sox offer out of the water and it is believed that the trade is a mere formality.
I pray you took none of that seriously because, I Like Jokes...
