July 23 roundup: Yankees talking, too

So much talk leading up to the Trade Deadline has involved the Mets, but the cross-town Yankees remain very much a part of the conversation.

ESPN’s Buster Olney tweeted that there is a “big gap” between what the Padres are asking for setup man Mike Adams and what the Yankees are willing to give up. Because of this, Olney says, a deal is unlikely.

Bob Klapisch of the the Bergen Record says the Yankees are still leaning toward not trading for a starter, despite Phil Hughes‘ poor outing against the Athletics on Friday. He says New York’s next option is bringing Ivan Nova back from the minors.

* Multiple Mets players’ names have been floated in trade rumors, but Sports Illustrated’s Jon Heyman reports that all the club’s talks revolve around Carlos Beltran. Any other trade, Heyman said, will come late. The New York Daily News reported the Mets would like to have a Beltran deal done before next weekend, rather than wait until the last minute.

Olney also tweeted that Mets general manager Sandy Alderson is not necessarily sold on eating most of Beltran’s salary.

* FOX Sports’s Ken Rosenthal tweeted that the Cardinals don’t intend to move Colby Rasmus, but are looking for every way to improve.

* Olney reported that there is growing interest in Tampa Bay’s B.J. Upton.

Yankees dont need Beltran, yes I am a Yankee fan but where would he play? left field dont think so gardners playing better then him, and he doesnt want to be a DH

But what I dont get is why the Yankees wouldnt get a starter Burnett and Hughes are not doing as they are expected so I would think they should go for a starter, there fine in the pen with Robertson Ayala Wade and Mo with a 1 ERA and them getting Soriano back I think the bullpen is strong, maybe just a good lefty to help out Logan maybe like Sean Burnett

I want Beltran and Need Starting ubaldo jimenez Need Join Yankees.. i need power than less most injure A-rod find player need.. Ty W. I wish join Yankees.. Now Please Trade 5 Player List Carlos B., Ubaldo J., Ty W. ,Adam and Soriano Pleaseeeeeee

I want a solid starter because Burnett and Hughes are not playing at their A game right now. But bumping down Burnett or Hughes wouldn’t be very good either. I guess just stick with C.C. winning us all his starts and Garcia and Colon are pitching well still. Hopefully Hughes starts heating up and Bartolo and Garcia continue their dominance.

the yankees are downplaying their actual need for a starter. They want one but i don’t think that there is one on the market. I know cashman wants king felix but he is more likely going to settle for wandy rodriguez coming into the number 2/3 spot in the pitching rotation. Ubaldo Jimenez would cost too much and you really don’t know what to expect from the guy. everybody needs to keep in mind that cashman has to save extra money in case cc decides to opt out of his contract at the end of the season (which would be a total disaster scenario)
