08:09 AM ET 07.27 | The Blue Jays reportedly have legitimate interest in him, but he's not likely headed that way. Of all the teams interested in Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez -- and there are a lot -- the Yankees have the best chance of actually landing him, according to major league sources. It's harder to know whether the two teams will actually be able to complete a deal, because the Rockies continue to place a high price on Jimenez, and the Yankees continue to be protective of their prospects. Any Jimenez deal would almost certainly need to include one of the Yankees' top catching prospects (either Jesus Montero or Austin Romine), as well as some combination of the top pitching prospects (Manuel Banuelos, Dellin Betances and Ivan Nova).

I have a feeling that Jimenez won't be the answer for the Yankees. So, got ahead, Empire, mortgage your future for him.

The Rockies will want a ton of good prospects for this guy. I don't see this happening unless Cashman gets overuled by the Steinbrenner boys once again.

This guy is just to much to get right now. The Yankees should just get the pitcher from the Dodgers or the Mariners.
