Klapisch: Are the Yanks deadline buyers or sellers?By
As the trade deadline fast approaches, speculation over the Yanks’ approach to the deadline this year mounts. Over at ESPN.com, Bob Klapisch kicked things off with an interesting, if obvious, take on the Yankees. With the team’s flaws out in the open and the team itself underachieving, Klapisch notes that the Yanks’ play over the next few weeks will determine whether or not the Yanks are buyers or sellers. He runs through the usual topics â€” Kyle Farnsworth’s consistently terrible pitching, Bobby Abreu’s hot and cold hitting and A-Rod‘s opt-out clause â€” while offering no concrete conclusions. My take: Farnsworth is gone, but the Yanks are buyers as they try to stage a great comeback. What do you think? Will the Yanks be buyers or sellers come July 31st?
