BLEEDING YANKEE BLUE PLAYER TRACKER #5
Andre Ethier: Ethier is NOT on the trading block. That's what a "source" told Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, read HERE. OK, this is all fine and good, but the Los Angeles Dodgers are on a shopping spree...because they can, and if they think they can improve their team and trade Ethier, they're going to do it. Trust me. Stay tuned for that.
Shin-Soo Choo: The Red Sox are everywhere lately. Right now they are linked to Shin-Soo Choo. Will they trade for him? I'm not so sure, in fact, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe says No...read HERE. Remember, the Yankees claim to not be in on Choo, read HERE, but this could be interesting between division rivals.
RA Dickey: MLB.com says HERE that Dickey could be traded but the goal of the Mets is to try and reach an agreement with him. RA Dickey would prefer to stay with the Mets.
Raul Ibanez: Will the Yankees sign Raul Ibanez for another year? It would be a smart move. In my personal opinion, sign Ichiro Suzuki and sign Raul Ibanez. Use that platoon in right field. That's it. Cheap and smart.
Ryan Madson: Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports says HERE that the Reds are looking to get Ryan Madson back. You have to know though that Madson is coming off Tommy John Surgery, so... we'll see how that goes. There is also talk about Madson coming back to the Phillies, read HERE.
Josh Hamilton: Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe believes that the Yankees, the Dodgers, the Mariners, or Orioles are teams to watch when it comes to Hamilton. Read HERE. I do not see the Yankees in this, I find his price tag and years ridiculous.
