Here come the New York Yankees! The trade deadline isn’t over yet as the Yankees add another name to the mix.

As if the world didn’t have enough reasons to despise the New York Yankees. After their bullpen additions of David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle last week, it seemed the ‘pen was stacked for good.

That is, until another former Yankee was thrown into the mix. Justin Wilson of the Detroit Tigers is another pitcher who might find his way into the already stacked ‘pen in the Bronx.

As Detroit Free Press Sports Writer Anthony Fenech announced on Twitter, the Yankees are the next team to express interest in the Tigers’ closer.

Imagine if the Yankees pull this off. They would have a bullpen consisting of Adam Warren, Chad Green, Kahnle, Robertson, Dellin Betances, Aroldis Chapman and Wilson.

At that rate, you wouldn’t even need a starting pitcher. Might as well just turn to the bullpen for every single game.

Is this a bold strategy or actually a well thought-out plan? Andrew Marchand has an idea.

Sounds right to me.

On another entertaining note, we’ve got the Frazier twins on the Yankees, Clint and Todd.

While Todd finally hit his first home run in pinstripes yesterday afternoon, he took some time prior to the game to mess with his little brother, Clint (no, they are not related).

But maybe they are related? They seriously are acting like little brothers messing with each other.

Hey, at least we know that they know how to have fun.

  1. On the trade issue, I’m not counting on any major trades by Cashman before the deadline unless they make long term sense. For example, Alonso would be an upgrade at 1B, but at what price, considering he’s a free agent after the season? The uncertainty concerning how, when or even if Bird will return muddies the waters significantly. Remember, too, that the Yankee front office is seriously focused on slashing payroll to get below the penal threshold of the new CBA so they will be in a better position to join in the free agent feeding frenzy expected after the 2018 season. Value is still the prime directive.
