Soriano is the guy they want to unload salary with. Garza and Dempster, not as much...especially Garza.
If it comes down to strictly major league/major league ready players, the Yankees don't have as much ammo.
Outside of Montero being involved in the disastrous Pineda deal, they've been somewhat unwilling to move their better prospects recently probably because of the overall team age. That philosophy has cost them Cliff Lee and Johan Santana.
I wouldn't touch Soriano with a 10 foot pole though.
