Mackey did state that he was "unsure" of the "seriousness" of said talks but it's still an interesting idea. Bell, who is coming off a disappointing season, doesn't seem like much of a fit for the Yankees with Luke Voit and the log jam of potential designated hitters already in the Bronx. Acquiring an arm like Taillon would make more sense for New York but both teams could just be kicking the tires here. It's still a situation worth monitoring. The ice cold stove is starting to heat up.
