Unit out? (linked)

Oh god yes. Let this be a reality. The word is the Yanks have been offered Chad Tracy and 2 prospects. I'd jump on that in a heartbeat, even paying a large portion of the $16 million that is owed to Randy in 2007. Tracy is a 26-year-old 3b who bats lefty. He could easily move to 1b to fill that hole. His 06 stats: .281/.343/.451, 154 gms, 91 runs, 41 2b, 20 HR, 80 rbi, 54 bb, 129 k, 5 sb, 1 cs. Very good numbers except for the Ks.

I'm sure the Yanks have asked for 24-year-old 1b Conor Jackson, but that's asking way too much for a 43-year-old injured pitcher. Maybe paying all of RJ's contract, or adding Melky to the deal could pry Jackson away from Arizona, but I still doubt it. is reporting that talks have slowed.

I'd also love to get Miguel Montero, a 23-year-old catching prospect, who was ranked the 3rd best catching prospect in baseball by The D-backs top 10 prospects.

The Yanks are also talking with the Padres and Giants. Hopefully it becomes a bidding war in the NL West.

More prospect lists - D-backs, Giants, Dodgers, Angels.
