These are some of my proposals and ideas about who the Yankees should let go. Of course, we dissect -- who else? -- Alex Rodriguez.
How about A-Rod, Eduardo Nunez and Ivan Nova for Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle? Reyes is owed $92 million over the next five years. Buehrle is due $48 million over the next three.

So the Marlins would get a Miami icon, a talented young shortstop and a proven major league winner. Plus, Florida would save money on the deal.

Jeter could DH more and share short with Reyes. The way the Marlins structured Reyes' contract, backloaded and without a no-trade, it seems obvious they will eventually trade him. Why not now?
