    Yankees are in one painful to watch funk.

    No matter what the offense has done for the past 21 games or so, the pitching (starting or bullpen) is blowing it. The O has been decent given the amount of injuries.

    Every pitcher has failed at least once during their streak.

    Yanks have held the sox to one run over the past 27 innings.

    Watching Carter in the National league I wasn't surprised with what happened with him.

    Lucas Duda would be a great fit right now. I know it's not usual for the teams to deal, but I wonder if the Yanks have trade pieces? Duda's a good defender and could really help them. The Mets have Dominic Smith looming in the minors for next year. But Sandy drives a tough bargain, and I'm not sure how Cash is approaching this.

    He's just incredibly streaky. Duda is having a good year in what is I believe a contract year, but he's been known to hit five homers in a week and hit .450 over that week-week and a half span and then dry up for a month.

    I just don't want to give up any of the youth, and I'm sure Cashman won't with this revitalization of the franchise. I just wonder if this is viewed as enough of a competitive year to try to make move.

    I want to see us attempt to get a pitcher like Sonny Gray. There still doesn't seem to be much of a future of this rotation moving forward outside of Severino (especially with Tanaka's struggles). It'd be awesome to trade for Sonny Gray and retain him. Almost tough to see an Oakland pitcher coming here, signing a big deal and seeing extended success though.

    Yeah, I'm not really in tune with the Yanks and how Cash is approaching things. But it seems like a 1st baseman and a pitcher could keep them in the hunt. I get your point tho. I would like to see the Yanks compete and stay in the hunt. Duda's a good 1st baseman and can go on tremendous tears. Him sitting behind Sanchez and Judge & co. would make one hellava a powerhouse lineup.
    Sandy would want something tho and it may not be time for Cash to do that like you said.

    Yankees Have Inquired With Mets On Duda, Reed :)

    They both could make a difference. But Sandy will wait and wait to get the best deal. I'd like to see the Yanks get 'em both. But I wanna see 'em pay, a lot too, tho.:)

    Yankees reacquire D-rob. Three closers and one starter is no way to build a pitching staff.

    Frazier is a good piece too. Goes to 3rd and Headley goes to 1st. Shows Cash wants to stay in the hunt while there's a chance. Now maybe he'll pick up a Starter and use the deep Bullpen to help the starters early.

    Yeah I'm starting to get confused about this whole let's get a million good relievers and they'll rectify shitting starting pitching mentality.

    The three headed monster thing at the backend of the bullpen does you no good if you're down 6-1 in the 6th.

    I wish we would've made a play for Sonny Gray. The intriguing part is obviously his youth to go along with the talent.
