    Every year it seems that the story of the trade deadline is the same: pitching, pitching, pitching. This year isnít much different, as Cole Hamels and Zack Greinke are drawing major headlines and the Yankees are being connected to lesser talents like Francisco Liriano and Wandy Rodriguez, but for the most part speculation about the Yankees dealing for an extra starter has been surprisingly muted once the immediate aftermath of the injuries to Andy Pettitte and C.C. Sabathia passed. Thereís a perfectly logical explanation for that though: the Yankees just donít need any extra pitching right now.

    Ken Davidoff has an interesting item in his blog at the Post this morning about postseason home runs, showing, in effect, that thereís no pattern at all to the postseason home run rate of World Series champion compared to their regular season rate over the last 10 seasons. Four of those teams hit more home runs per at bat in the postseason, three hit fewer, and the other three, including the 2009 Yankees, hit them at exactly the same rate as they did in the regular season. Itís not entirely scientific, but itís leaps and bounds better than simply screaming that itís impossible to hit home runs in October.

    Been trying to figure out my own sentiments about Castro and whether he's the biggest problem here. While I can see the arguments about his metrics, he

    This is a Cashman quote:

    Their public stance doesn't matter all that much. On paper, they are the 3rd or 4th best team in the division.

    No, but I believe he is speaking for the organization. I don't believe Yankee management views 2017 as a rebuilding year. Sure they will work in some

    Once Bud Selig was let into the HOF, *all* condemnations of PEDs users needs to cease and desist, post haste. (I like saying "post haste")

    I'm sure Cashman doesn't agree with me, but this is just my perspective, which I've posted before:

    I have Castro (1.2 bWAR) as the #1 problem
