September MMLBRC: New York Yankees

On the first Monday of each month we roll out our Monthly MLB Report Card (forever to be known as MMLBRC) for the Mets, Phillies and Yankees.

Let’s make a deal

Two down, one to go.

With both New York teams and the Phillies in contention, we knew it would be a busy trade deadline for the three teams we cover here at TGE.  The Phils swung their deal, and now the Yanks have followed suit, swapping a package of prospects for Xavier Nady and Dámaso Marte.
