New York Post | Howie Kussoy: Andrew Miller didn't envision his career panning out the way it has after failing as a starter as the sixth overall pick in 2006. In the end, though, Miller just wanted to be a good major league player, and he has managed to become just that as a valuable part of the Yankees' bullpen success.

ESPN | Jim Bowden: Yankees GM Brian Cashman says that no moves at the trade deadline are more likely than big moves, but Bowden doesn't believe him. The team might be able to win the division with the team they have, but a few upgrades might make them favorites in the whole American League. | Ryan Hatch: To the surprise of basically no one, the Yankees' bullpen has been the team's biggest strength coming out of the All-Star break. The quartet of Justin Wilson, Chasen Shreve, Dellin Betances, and Andrew Miller have been strong all year, helping the Yankees to secure wins in tight games.

Newsday | David Lennon: The Yankees are hitting their stride at the right time and it doesn't appear that any team in the AL East, as currently constructed, has what it takes to overtake them. All of that is, of course, pending moves made between now and the end of the month. Still, the Yankees have a favorable schedule down the stretch with plenty of games at home where they score the second-most runs in all of baseball. | Brendan Kuty: Masahiro Tanaka has given up a lot of home runs this year, including three to the Orioles on Thursday. Will their ace's struggles with the long ball prompt the Yankees to pursue a pitcher at the trade deadline?
