From the latest news on K-Rod according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, apparently Sandy Alderson has put out more then a feeler for K-Rod, and the Yankees response wasn’t a rejection, but rather a “call us closer to the deadline” move.

The Mets have been playing great baseball, working as a team, getting timely hits and playing at least adequate defense in the field. The combination of Daniel Murphy, Lucas Duda, Ruben Tejada and Justin Turner have combined to plug the holes in the lineup, get key RBI hits and hold their own at their respective positions. This is all fine and well, but with David Wright expected to return after the All-Star Break, what is [...]
