Maybe its time to consider a deal with them. They need help in the rotation and the pen and would probably have interest in both Cordero and Volquez. Adding Cordero to the pen would free Joba for a move to the rotation and Volquez would be that former all star type that they would lke to add to the rotation.
Francisco Cordero and Edinson Volquez for Curtis Granderson and two of Ivan Nova, Hector Noesi, Dellin Betances, Andrew Brackman and Manny Banuelos.
For the Yankees, they address the rotation and the pen while opening a spot in the OF. Gardner moves to CF and LF becomes available as a possible spot for Jesus Montero or a signing of a guy like Magglio Ordonez. The Reds cut some dollars while balancing/fixing the line-up and adding a huge upgrade. The team would have money for Rhodes or another reliever to help in the pen and two more depth options behind the Arroyo, Cueto, Bailey, Wood, Leake rotation (a guy like Nova might beat out Leake for the 5th spot). Chapman would close with Masset and whoever they could sign setting up. I've been a Volquez supporter and recognize that he may have the potential to be the best of the bunch, but I've become a skeptic lately and have serious doubts about him. The Reds would probably still have the money and, with Leake and two arms from the Yankees top prospect group, enough depth of valued pitching prospects to add a rental TOR arm at the deadline.
