At least for now, the Evils possess five worthy starters, a decent bullpen and more DH's than Donald Trump has tubes of Super-Glue to secure his coyote pelt.

New York Yankees trade rumors: should they add another starter?

Cole Hamels The New York Yankees have plenty of pitching. Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda, CC Sabathia, Nathan Eovaldi and Ivan Nova comprise the team’s starting rotation, while Adam Warren, currently exiled to the bullpen, is also a viable option. All of those players are capable of throwing quality innings, but fans are right to have some concerns. Lately, Sabathia can’t seem...
