Wandy Rodriguez

As we wait around to hear if anything happens with those Yankees-Astros talks about Wandy Rodriguez, we get this tweet from Jon Heyman:

 Yankees dont like wandy’s contract, or necessarily his pitching. but they know they need to do something.

Well, apart from that …

Look: I understand the trade deadline is nutso, but when was the last time the Yankees made a move simply to make a move? Because they panicked or something?  I can’t think of any time since back when Big Stein had his fastball that they did that, and I wouldn’t expect them to do it now.

Which makes me think that they aren’t trading for Wandy Rodriguez.  Or, that if they do trade for Rodriguez, that Heyman’s assessment of the Yankees’ assessment of him is less-than-trenchant.

    What about signing Soriano over the objections of Cashman?
