The fun of the All-Star break is over officially over. Our monster that roams right field returns as the HR Derby Champ and Robinson Cano goes creeping back into obscurity in Seattle. All talk will now turn to trades, rumor and what each team should do. And the Yankees, will be a huge part of the conversation.

Looking around, you can find all kinds of rumors and chatter that is basically just that. Ultimately, you need to be careful with the rumors, because many times you just don't know if anything will actually pan out.  In fact, I just recently came across this from and I found it interesting for personal reasons.   

"In theory, the Yankees and Phillies are a good MLB trade deadline match.

With a variety Phillies players on the block, a multi-player blockbuster involving All-Star reliever Pat Neshek and power-hitting first baseman Tommy Joseph to the Yankees could change the balance of power in the AL East race."

Now look, any help the Yankees can get in the bullpen at this point would be a true blessing. Same goes for the first base slot. After all, the Yankees have no timetable for return of Greg Bird, and yes, while they just got a kid like Garrett Cooper, is that enough. There are a ton of ideas floating around right now, but to be honest, this rumor is cool to see on a personal level...

Tommy Joseph attended and played for the Horizon High School Huskies here in Phoenix, Arizona where I am from.  That happens to be the same High School I attended. I know his High School coach and one time had a conversation with him about Tommy.

Bottom line, he's a good kid, a talented athlete and for me personally, I'd love to see him in pinstripes.  

Would it happen? Who knows, but I do know this... the rumors are flying, and much of it is fun.  I do wonder what will happen with this rumor.  Here's the catch... 2 names the Yankees may have to give up to make this a reality...

Dillon Tate... Miguel Andujar.  Now... the question.  Do you really want to part with those guys? Something to think about. 

What do you think? Comment.
