The Yankee beat: bad trades, no trades, and the lottery

Hiroki Kuroda got a rare 7-inning shutout thanks to the rain as the Yankees beat the Blue Jays 6-0 behind a 4-run 1st inning. The Yankees have now scored at least three runs in 42 consecutive games. Here is the recap and graph.

Here is what the blogoshere was talking about today.

• NoMaas.org calls out the Yankees for what they say are two bad trades – the A.J. Burnett deal and the George Kontos for Chris Stewart swap. Hard to agree with them on Burnett, the Yankees have had a great rotation and it was obvious he would do better in the NL.

• It’s About the Money…Stupid says that the Yankees would be hard pressed to improve their lineup with trades. While it might be nice to see them land Justin Upton, IATMS has a point.

• MLB Trade Rumors has the results of the very 1st Competitive Balance Lottery, where small market and struggling teams get some help via an extra draft pick.

    I am very pleasantly surprised at how good the Yankees starting rotation has looked over the last 2 months roughly. Considering they way they all looked the first month or so of the season who would have guessed it. The Yankees still could use a little help with the bullpen especially the middle innings guys. They are a little thin right now there.
