Padres Rumors: Yankees think Padres are working on deal for Kimbrel with another team

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

As the clock ticks closer to 1 p.m.'s trade deadline it's looking like Craig Kimbrel will not end up with the Yankees.  The Yankees were said to be very aggressive in their pursuit of Kimbrel, but A.J. Preller appear to be working on a deal elsewhere.  Or they could just let time run out and keep this roster intact and pretend they're going to make a run at the playoffs.

I'm guessing the Yankees aren't used to being left hanging in limbo.  Preller is really making them sweat the deal.  The Yanks are getting desperate and are now said to have reversed their stance and are open to including Jorge Mateo in a deal.

There's no telling how many other deals Preller has up in the air.  Or he passed out a few hours ago and forgot to set an alarm.

This is fun.
