Last week I asked Pinstripe Alley readers to rank Brian Cashman’s best and worst trades. We received some great submissions, and I appreciate the effort and research that went into those articles. Everyone universally agreed that the trade that brought Alex Rodriguez to the Yankees was one of Cashman’s best. The trade that sent Mike Lowell to the Marlins was deemed Cashman’s worst trade. Disagree? It’s never too late to tackle this topic.

Here is this week’s prompt:

Predict the final standings in the AL East

We’ve passed the halfway mark in the season, and there is just a week left until the trade deadline. At this point, most teams have either given up on the postseason, or are working to improve their rosters for the playoff push. After two good months, the Yankees have dropped off a bit and currently trail the Red Sox in the division, with the Rays nipping at their heels. Are the Yankees and Red Sox destined to duke it out for the rest of the season, or will one team pull ahead? Head over to the FanPost section and make your predictions about the final standings in the AL East. Feel free to expand your predictions to include the rest of the AL and the NL, too.
