• Girardi shoots down knee jerk trade speculation

    With C.C. Sabathia and Andy Pettitte both hitting the disabled list with just about a month left until the non-waiver trade deadline, it was pretty much a given that the national baseball media would launch straight into trade speculation mode where the Yankees are concerned. Joe Girardi isnít biting on that, however, saying that the Yankees would try out internal options, namely Adam Warren and David Phelps, before going outside of the organization for help. Of course, thatís true up until the point that it isnít, and given that Brian Cashman already hinted that he might still be looking for starting pitching upgrades it seems likely that the Yankees will at least be calling around to see if they can get a good deal, but that isnít likely to be the case in the immediate aftermath of these injuries.
