The Cleveland Indians have acquired a minor league pitcher and infielder from the Yankees, completing the July 31 trade that sent reliever Kerry Wood to New York.
Everywhere you turn in these playoffs, late pickups and midseason acquisitions are playing important roles on the field.
With the ALCS set to begin and a trip back to the World Series on the line, Sweeny Murti joined me to talk about what we can expect to see in this series, and what matchup we are looking at in the World Series.
No right-minded Yankees fan should have felt good about this team heading into the playoffs. After just two games, suddenly it feels like 2009 again.
It’s the last three games of the season at Fenway, 180 days since the season opened, and the games don’t matter. The only thing that matters is that the Yankees are playing for the division and home-field advantage.
One win in the last eight games, and four straight losses to postseason teams has me wondering if the playoffs might last three games for the Yankees.
The New York Yankees acquired pitcher Kerry Wood from the Cleveland Indians on Saturday, the third deal in less than 24 hours for the World Series champions as they beefed up for the stretch run.
