Default Who thinks up these rumors?

Reported rumor has A-Rod coming to Phils
INQUIRER STAFF
Poll: Do you think this is a good idea?
Talk about a house cleaning.

The lastest trade rumor concerning Phillies outfielder Bobby Abreu now involves a whole lot more. A New York Post story today has Abreu, Pat Burrell, David Bell and Tom Gordon going to the New York Yankees for - get this - Alex Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera and a player to be named.

According to the Post, Rodriguez laughed when he heard the rumor.

"It doesn't make any difference," Rodriguez said of the rumor. "I would veto it."

Like Abreu, Rodriguez has a no-trade clause in his contract that he would have to waive if he was to be moved.

Needless to say, the fantasy league-like rumor is getting lots of airtime on sports-talk radio and will be a hot topic when the Phillies play the Braves tonight at Citizens Bank Park.

Imagine, though, an infield of A-Rod at third, Rollins at short, Chase Utley at second and Ryan Howard at first.

The question is, why would the Yankees do it?
Terrible rumor. Tom Gordon left the Yankees cause he didnt' want to be a set up man anymore... yet we're going to trade him back there?

Oh and A-Rod would get eaten alive by the Philly fans.
