With just under two weeks to go until the July 31 MLB Trade Deadline, there are going to be a ton of rumors flying about on what teams would give up for the Colorado Rockies' Ubaldo Jimenez. Supposedly the New York Yankees have talked quite a bit with the Rockies, and reportedly the Rockies have revealed the four players they want in return for Jimenez: catcher and pitcher Manny Banuelos, Dellin Betances and Ivan Nova. Nove has pitched in the majors this season as a replacement for Philip Hughes but has since returned to the minors.
says person w/ ties to rox: "montero will not be the centerpiece of (ubaldo) deal.'' theyll take him but not at best piece
This seems like this "person with ties to the Rockies" thinks a deal with the Yankees is all but preordained to happen. But what exactly is a "person with ties to the Rockies." Does that mean they are a team official, or is this a person who might do some consulting work for the team? We'll never know.
