Lucas Duda to the New York Yankees.  That's what at least 1 sportswriter thinks should happen.  Me? I'm not so sure.

Kevin Kernan throws out this suggestion about a possible new home for Lucas Duda. It's the Bronx. I'm not kidding.  He writes this in his latest New York Post piece...

"... a bevy of scouts descended on Citi Field on Monday night to take a closer look at the Mets’ trade chips as they moved that much closer to a fire sale with a terrible 6-3 loss to the Cardinals, who made three outfield errors in the sixth inning, and the Mets still couldn’t get back in this game.

The Yankees were included in the scouting brigade. Teams are kicking tires as they begin their final rounds of research with the trade deadline just around the corner.

The Yankees desperately need a first baseman and the Mets have a red-hot Lucas Duda.


Make that deal, NY, NY."

Now look, Bleeding Yankee Blue had floated this idea a while back too (Read DON'T LAUGH, BUT THE YANKEES ARE LOOKING AT LUCAS DUDA!), but we're not so sure it's a good thing.  Bottom line, some of us like it, others don't on the BYB staff.

Do we need Lucas Duda? Hey, maybe he can help, but can he pitch? That's seems to be the bigger problem in the Bronx these days, you know what I mean?

We'll have to keep an eye on this for you, but hey, in the end, Kernan makes a lot of sense too. Be sure to check out his piece.

He ends his column with this...

"Duda is hitting the ball too hard for the Yankees not to make a serious bid."
