Having exhausted Pittsburgh Pirates roster, Yanks & Redsocks look to Steelers for trades

NEW YORK _ Latest rumors around MLB have Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger headed to the Yankees, who seek to bolster their bullpen before the July 31 trade deadline.

Yankee GM Brian Cashman refused to confirm or deny talks, discussions or even thoughts, though he acknowledged that Boston and New York have drained everything above Dutch National Team value from the Pirates' roster and thus, must look elsewhere in the Steel City for August fodder.

"They like Roethlisberger in the bullpen and that guy with the hair, Polamalu," a scout said, speaking on the grounds that his words not be correctly quoted. "They figure the guy can play secondbase and put licks runners as they go by. The Redsocks need to hear footsteps."

Boston is said to be in talks with free agent rightfielder Plaxico Burress, a former Steeler.

"We like him in right field," a scout said. "He's got a real gun on him."

Ben will have to go to the Socks. Or else ESPN will have to do some reporting on his alleged assault.
