Cashman: Yankees won't deal A-Rod

Brian Cashman says he won't look to deal Alex Rodriguez in the offseason, despite rumors the squad is trying to unload the All Star third baseman after his poor postseason play and subsequent benching.


A-Rod trade not a possibility for Cashman

Alex Rodriguez was just 3-25 this postseason for the New York Yankees.


ARod: 'I love everything about being a Yankee'

Following the Yankees' playoff exit, third baseman Alex Rodriguez discussed liking and wanting to remain in New York next season.


Levine defends A-Rod after woeful postseason

After an ugly end to a 2012 postseason in which Alex Rodriguez's struggles became a focal point, Yankee president Randy Levine came out in defense of the third baseman.


Poof! Making A-Rod disappear from Yankees not easy

Can the New York Yankees really find a way to move Alex Rodriguez to another team? It won't be easy, but it needs to be done.


A-Rod reportedly 'keen' on playing for Marlins

To this point, it has been rumored that New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez could be on his way to the Miami Marlins in a trade, and Yankees GM Brian Cashman has denied said rumors.

ESPN is throwing its hat into the ring on Wednesday, saying that a specific conversation between Yankees president Randy Levine and Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria could have lead to substantial trade talks. More than that, the report says that Miami is likely the only place that A-Rod would accept a trade to:

A second source with knowledge of Rodriguez' thinking said the likely only place Rodriguez eventually would accept a trade to is Miami. Rodriguez has five years and $114 million remaining on his contract, not including milestone home run bonuses.

According to the report, the conversation between the two had Loria saying that Alex is "Mr. Miami," and that it "would be great if he played here for us." Levine reportedly then responded with "You can have him." The conversation was said to have been light-hearted and not evidence of actual, factual trade talks, but the report does say it could have been the catalyst for potential talks in the future.

Rodriguez has been struggling this season, and is just 3-for-23 in the postseason, with 12 strikeouts against right-handers. It certainly would seem as though the Yankees could move him this offseason. If Miami is willing, Rodriguez's reported interest in the Marlins could help facilitate such a trade.


Yankees deny A-Rod, Marlins trade rumors

The rumors are swirling regarding a potential trade of third baseman Alex Rodriguez from the New York Yankees to the Miami Marlins. It was originally rumored, by Keith Olbermann, that the two teams were in discussions regarding a trade. Olbermann recently updated his story with a note that general manager Brian Cashman has denied his report and that Cashman is "incorrect."

Bryan Hoch was the one to Tweet Cashman's proclamation that the rumors regarding Rodriguez are "not true." Olbermann points out that Cashman has denied things that ended up being true in the past (and also referenced an event in which Olbermann was thrown out, presumably by order of Cashman), and also referenced a point in which the Yankees ownership signed a free agent without discussing it with Cashman in the past.

So at this point, the Yankees have officially denied any trade talks regarding Rodriguez and the Marlins, while the one who broke the original rumor is sticking to his guns. That's all the word on the trade thus far.
