To get into what happened in yesterday's game would just be depressing or anger inducing. Okay, a quick break down. The Yankees offense was acceptably good. CC Sabathia was bad, yet again. Jacoby Ellsbury misplayed a ball and Carlos Beltran could not get off his lawn chair. Overall, just an annoying loss. Meanwhile, the focus right now is on what Brian Cashman is going to do before the trade deadline ends. Do your thing, Ninja Cash.

Cotham needs a hero.
Ahhh Yankee fans.
What's funny is, I was yelling "SI. SI." later on during this game.
This is pretty much an exact image from the game.
Again, the world needs laughter right now.

This HMM goes out to all the mods who are keeping on point with all the trade deadline stuff. Great job everyone.
- The trade deadline. Exciting or nerve wracking?
- Name other hilarious jobs that CC Sabathia can do other than pitch.

It's Commercial Jingle Week on Pinstripe Alley. You know, I still don't want to grow up, even though I'm no longer a Toys R Us kid. As always, please link us your song of the day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. Nathan Eovaldi takes the mound against the red hot White Sox this evening. Here's hoping that Nate is indeed nasty and continues his great pitching.
