    The more I see Shreve and Carpenter, I have to tip my hat to Cashman for the trade to bring them in. I know what we gave up was a possible starter but Banuelos wasn't the same after the surgery. He may still turn into a MLB pitcher but right now we have two important pitchers in the pen and Banuelos is still in the minors.

    NY can't afford both inconsistent hitting AND pitching.

      Chen pitched well. Yanks are in first place. They're pretty good. Whitley's been pretty good.
