Poll Results: Yanks Won’t Make Deal For StarterPosted: August 1, 2011
The results are in and according to the fans, the Yankees will not make a trade at the deadline for a starter. As it turned out, the fans were right because they didn’t wind up making a deal, and rightfully so. Brian Cashman said that he would have traded his top prospects for a sure thing, but with his drop in velocity and his move from the NL West to the AL East, he didn’t think Ubaldo Jimenez was a sure thing. After him, there was a huge drop off in the talent. But still, Hiroki Kuroda wouldn’t wave his no trade clause and Wandy Rodriguez had way too much money left on his contract.
Make sure you vote on the new poll: Were the Yankees wrong not to acquire a starter?
