10:37 AM ET 07.27 | There are some conflicting reports concerning Chicago White Sox right fielder Alex Rios. Depending on who you ask, he may or may not have been approached by the New York Yankees before they made the move to land Alfonso Soriano. Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported that Rios would not waive his no-trade clause for a move to the Yankees, but the outfielder strongly denied that claim. "He should get his facts right because it puts me in a bad spot," Rios said. "I was never asked about that. I don't know where he's getting his insights."

His name is Rios and he dances on the sand,
Just like the Chicago River twisting through gangland,
And when he shines he really shows you what he can,
Oh Rios, Rios dance across U.S. Cellular land...........

Alex Rios? Sweet god. Not for nothing Yankee fans...but you might be seeing the dawn of the return of the 80's. "Superstars" five years too late surrounded by scrubs. All that's missing is a Mattingly wasting his prime in the middle of eight automatic outs.

hard to argue with that. want to, but facts are on your side.

The Yankees should be selling , not buying regardless. Hughes, Chamberlain and just about anybody else. Not that you look for much in return, just to open up some roster space and be done with it.

The only silver lining is that their farm system has been so bad for the past decade that nobody they've given away has come back to haunt them.
