There's a new general manager in Flushing, and that new GM is willing to consider dealing with the New York Yankees.

While the division rival Mets have reportedly been the most aggressive team in the Realmuto sweepstakes Jon Heyman and Jon Morosi both tweeted that the Phillies were involved in trade discussions.

Into that mix comes something interesting: Ken Rosenthal reports that the Yankees are open to moving third baseman Miguel Andujar and that he's "a name to watch". Multiple other reporters confirmed the possibility of the trade. The two NY teams have not make a player-for-player trade since the Mike Stanton for Felix Heredia lefty reliever swap in 2004.

Verizon Writes Down $4.6 Billion from AOL and Yahoo Acquisitions
Before the re-accounting Verizon said the Oath brand's goodwill valuation was $4.8 billion. Almost half of those employees will exit in December, with rest to leave by June 2019.

As recently as Tuesday afternoon several national baseball writers linked the Phillies to Realmuto, who is reportedly unhappy with the Marlins rebuild. Such a blockbuster would certainly be a good enough reason to part with Andujar despite a strong rookie season in which he hit.297/.328/.527 with 27 homers and 92 RBI. As such, Andujar could fit into that in any number of ways.

Of course, there's a huge a difference between "unlikely" and "no chance of happening", and Martino reported later in the night that the Yankees were "pushing hard" to get a deal done with the Mets.
