Trade Deadline: Yankees Last Minute Rundown

Credit: Getty Images It’s Thursday morning and we are just mere hours away from the 4pm trade deadline. This year the Yankees have been connected to some of the usual big names, along with some very under the radar guys.

Yankeetorial: Two excruciating defeats lead the Yankees into "Mortgage the Future" Week

This weekend, the Redsocks traded the ever-crumbling Jake Peavy for two solid pitching prospects, and there's not a Boston frat-boy in beer pong captivity who doesn't expect his team to rise next year and crush the AL East.

Lately, though, he's on a roll...
