A few items as we want for the New York Yankees big series with Tampa Bay to begin tonight -- and to find out if the Yankees will do anything at the trade deadline.
- Ken Rosenthal tweets that the Yankees are still hot on the trail of Adam Dunn, despite statements to the contrary.
- Jorge Posada's knee is a problem for the Yankees at the trade deadline, especially since there is not much available on the catching market.
- Mike Silva of NY Baseball Digest wonders if it's time to change the trade deadline. It's not really a bad idea, especially since the waiver trades in August are sort of a joke.
- Chan Ho Park was pitiful in the ninth inning Thursday. It's About The Money wonders how much longer CHOP can stay on the Yankee roster. So do I, friends. So do I.
- Marcus Thames knew the ball would find him at third base Thursday night.
