    Every year it seems that the story of the trade deadline is the same: pitching, pitching, pitching. This year isn’t 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. There’s a perfectly logical explanation for that though: the Yankees just don’t 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 there’s 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. It’s not entirely scientific, but it’s leaps and bounds better than simply screaming that it’s impossible to hit home runs in October.

    ugh no way....Between McCann, ARod, Ryan, and even Romine the Yankees have enough bodies that can fake 1B.

    Yeah, it could happen but the chances are pretty damn slim. We shouldn't forgo improving the OF now because Judge might be ready in two years. Hell, I

    I'm fine with them passing on Tomas, but I don't think Judge should affect that decision at all. Sanchez and Williams were both more highly thought of
