Reports began circulating on Wednesday that the Yankees and Marlins had discussed the possibility of an Alex Rodriguez for Heath Bell trade that would allow each team to rid itself of overpaid, under performing players.

However, Yankees GM Brian Cashman says that’s, ‘false’, according to espn.com:

“I have had no discussions whatsoever with the (Miami) Marlins,” Cashman said. “Certainly would never have any trade discussions under the circumstances. I certainly have not had any discussions with any GMs other than the pregame meetings with Dan Duquette with the Orioles, with the umpires and then with Dave Dombrowski (of the Tigers). But I’ve had no trade discussions, so false. One hundred percent false.”

According to the source, Loria said in his conversation about A-Rod with Levine, “Alex is Mr. Miami; it would be great if he played here for us.”

To which Levine is said to have replied, “You can have him.”

Although Wednesday’s ALCS Game 4 was postponed, manager Joe Girardi’s starting lineup did not include the three-time MVP for the second straight night.

Bell has two-years and $18-million dollars remaining on his contract, plus a team option in the next year.

A-rod still has five years and $118 million dollars left on his current deal.
