Game # 97: Yankees (50-46) vs Ms (49-50)

Series Watch: 0-8-2 This series: 2-1

If the Yankees are to break that series drought they'll do it behind Caleb Smith in his first MLB start. Ells is getting splinters in his butt!! (YEAH!) Desperate for offense, Sanchez squats a day after a night game -- and bats clean up. Not Webb Wade gets the start at 2nd.

Game # 96: Yanks (50-45) vs Mariners (48-50)

Series Watch: 0-8-2. This series, Yanks up 2-0 and on the verge of breaking that streak.

Headley sits. Castro sits. And for a 2nd straight game, Ells sits! Could this a trend? An answer to prayers? Cooper in. Torreyes in.  Yanks at full Frazier strength.

Has StatCast been recalibrated to fit Aaron Judge? Will the Mariners close the dome to prevent Judge from doing what he did last night?

Game # 93: Yankees (48-44) vs Minnesota (47-46)

Once again the Yankees have a chance (not Adams) to break a long series losing and non-winning streak.

Choi and Refs are DFA'd. Shreve sent to minors.

Judge gets day off. Holliday gets a holiday. Sanchez at DH. Torreyes in for Headley.

I'm sorry (the hell I am) but this lineup makes no sense to. Why is Todd Frazier not playing?

Deal is done: Yankees get Todd Frazier, David Robertson, and Tommy Kahnle from White Sox

There you have it. EJ posted the report of the deal nearing the finish line earlier, and now we know what it cost the Yankees. Blake Rutherford, Ian Clarkin, Tito Polo, and Tyler Clippard will join the White Sox organization in exchange for Todd Frazier, David Robertson, and Tommy Kahnle.

This trade kills two birds with one stone: Frazier is a boost at first base (and can chip in at third, too), while Robertson and Kahnle are much needed help in the bullpen. The cost was fairly steep, but the 2017 Yankees are unquestionably better for it. Check back for further analysis of the detail tomorrow.

Podcast Episode 96: Trade Rumors

EJ, Scott and Paul run through all of the current Yankee trade rumors.

EJ and Jim talk about the Yankees in the All Star Game and Home Run Derby, the struggles of Dellin Betances, Jorge Mateo, and the notable breakout prospects so far in 2017.
