A-rod to Marlins? Rumors Gaining Steam.

Discussions between the Marlins and Yankees involve the Yankees sending A-rod to Miami. 

Keith Olbermann reported the following on his MLB Network blog:

Sources close to both organizations confirm the Yankees would pay all – or virtually all – of the $114,000,000 Rodriguez is owed in a contract that runs through the rest of this season and the next five. One alternative scenario has also been discussed in which the Yankees would pay less of Rodriguez’s salary, but would obtain the troubled Marlins’ reliever Heath Bell and pay what remains of the three-year, $27,000,000 deal Bell signed last winter. 

If these rumors are true, and the Yankees are that desperate, why do the Marlins not do this trade. They need a starting third baseman and sending him home can maybe get him going. In these playoffs he is batting just .130 and has been benched twice in eight games. He is right now the highest paid player in the MLB.
