At this moment, it seems to be a major rumor with plausability. Perhaps more confirmation will come by the time more people read this. I wonder if they may also try to get A-Rod and become the Yankees West since Yankees East seems to be starting to close down- ending their baseball dominance. Boston seems to be the New Yankees now. They have even polished their image more since their last World Series championship with the grungy guys with beards and long hair.
