A simple offer

The New York dailies have worked themselves into a frenzy of blaming A-Rod for the Yankees' now-annual postseason flameout. The solution is quite simple -- and such a good idea that there's no chance it will happen.
The Giants trade Armando Benitez, Matt Morris and Lance Niekro to the Yankees for Alex Rodriguez.
It's compelling -- the Yanks obviously need pitching; Niekro's a legacy with a link to the Hall of Fame via his Uncle Phil; and the combined salaries of Giant would be equal to A-Rod's.
Would someone please pass this on to Cashman and Sabean? You can thank me later.
