It’s been eight years since the Yankees’ near-trade of Cliff Lee that cost them the AL pennant and a trip to the World Series, and they haven’t been back to the World Series since.
I didn’t see Sunday or Monday’s trades coming, which is the way most Brian Cashman trades happen. The Yankees traded away Chasen Shreve, Adam Warren Tyler Austin.
The Yankees should have two general managers the way some football teams have two kickers. One GM could do the free-agent signings and Brian Cashman could do the trades.
