New York offers Jesus Montero for Joakim Soria




This kind've blew my mind when I first read this.

The Yankees "made a big proposal" for Soria. With three club options, the 26-year-old righty is under team control through 2014.  Had Soria not signed a team-friendly extension in May of 2008, he'd be eligible for free agency after the 2012 season.  The only blemish on his record was missing most of May last year with a sore shoulder.  How do the Yankees and Royals match up?  You'd expect Dayton Moore to pursue Montero or Austin Romine, though the Royals already have Billy Butler and Wil Myers in the organization.

Oh! And just wait, there's more!

11:23am: The Yankees dangled Jesus Montero in talks for Joakim Soria, reports ESPN's Jayson Stark, but the Royals weren't interested.

And this was just ten minutes ago. They would give up top prospects for Joakim Soria, but not Dan Haren. Haren a proven ace who is signed versus Soria, a closer who is signed through 2014. To me that just doesn't make sense. Also here's the link to the article. http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/arizona_diamondbacks/
