WFAN talkie Joe Benigno spewed out a rumor today that the Yanks were talking a deal with the Royals that would send Robinson "Lazy Bones" Cano to KC for righty starter Zack Greinke and infielder Alberto Callaspo.
Greinke is 10-10 sporting a 3.70 ERA. If he is to become a Yankee they certainly will reduce his innings pitched. Zack is on his way to 200 innings, which in the land of Joba Rules, is too many for a 24 year old. He is also the brother of Luke Greinke, 22, who was drafted in the 12th round (380th overall) by the Yankees in this years draft. Luke is 0-6 in 9 starts for single-A Staten Island.
Callaspo, 25, was signed by Anaheim, broke in with Arizona in 2006 and traded to KC for pitcher Billy Buckner. In 107 major league games he as played 2b, SS, 3b and OF. He was named by Baseball America as the Angels' ninth best prospect for 2005 and the Royals' minor League player of the year for 2006. Callaspo was arrested in 2007 by Phoenix police for domestic violence at his home, however, the charge was later dropped.
