Joel Sherman says it (He said it last August too): "Maybe these Yanks would be better off getting clobbered by the lowly White Sox this weekend, having their fate fully defined and taking advantage of pitching needs with the Angels and Dodgers to see if t

No trade for Alfonso Soriano, who through July sat in our bellies like a State Fair deep-fried pat of butter.2. We could have traded Robby Cano for a front-line prospect, or maybe three. If we scored a young 2B, we would have been...
