It’s been a wild week in Yankee land. The team has gotten better, but the club shocked all of us when they traded the always dependable Jordan Montgomery for injured center fielder Harrison Bader. Bader certainly has his merits as a player, but the trade of Montgomery just came out of left field, with the club seemingly prioritizing pitching depth given the rotation’s recent struggles, only to turn around and jettison the reliable lefty.
We’ll have loads of analysis of the deadline today, as Andres will look back at the Yankees’ deadline as a whole, while Dan will analyze all the prospects they gave up this go-around. John shows how the community reacted to the team’s moves, while Sam discusses what Bader brings to the table.
