There are Alfonso Soriano  and Manny Ramirez  rumors involving the Mets this morning, but not much in the way of our boys in the Bronx . One item that caught my eye though, concerns what the Yanks might do about a back-up first baseman . According to Sam Borden in The Daily News: 
GM Brian Cashman said the Yankees are looking at Andy Phillips as the likely replacement for Martinez at first, since he provides a cheap, righthanded option to complement Jason Giambi.
“We’d like to see what (Phillips) can do,” Cashman said of the 28-year-old. “That’s our initial thought and we think he’d do very well if given the chance. We’re not locked into it, but it’s a direction we’re looking at.”
Can you dig it, Cliff? Next thing you know they’ll be giving Colter Bean a shot at middle relief. Say it ain’t so, my brother.
