Magglio Ordonez?

Mgglio Ordonez is getting paid a lot of money and it doesn't look like the Tigers will compete in 2009. He will probably be on the trade block and the Yankees could be interested.

Rather than hand out a long term deal to Adam Dunn, Manny Ramirez, or Mark Texiera, the Yankees could trade for Ordonez. He has 18 million dollars due to him in 2009, an option for 18 million for 2010, and an option for 2011 for 15 million. I doubt it will happen, it would force Matsui or Damon to first base which Cashman doesn't want. However, it`s an interesting idea.
