Alex Rodriguez: No Deal to Marlins in the Works Staff

Update: GM Brian Cashman denied reports that the Yankees are in trade talks with the Marlins about Rodriguez, the Yankees' official site reports.

Recommendation: "I've had no discussions whatsoever with the Marlins," Cashman said. Cashman has been overruled by ownership before, and the Yankees would have to eat a tremendous amount of Rodriguez' salary to move him, but it remains to be seen whether the negative fan reaction to A-Rod's dismal postseason will have any impact on his performance going forward. He's clearly not the player he once was, but can still contribute for fantasy players if expectations are kept in check.
