The veteran is traded out of New York at the 11th hour for the second time in four years.
After their deal for Jonathan Lucroy falls through, the Indians pivot and snag their new closer out of the Bronx.
New York restocks the bullpen with a familiar name after trading away Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller. Alex Rodriguez was doing so well last year, and then last year ended. His career might be next.
celebrated his 41st birthday yesterday by sitting on the Yankees’ bench for the fifth consecutive game. Alex Rodriguez
Read the full article... Voting your conscience is awfully difficult as a baseball fan.
There’s a freedom in helplessness. Sometimes, the act of choosing gets in the way of life. Imagine the burden of infinite possibilities: the information cost of picking a new breakfast cereal each morning, scrolling through a Netflix queue that never folds back on itself. The burden of deciding which people you help (and which you don’t) with your charity foundation, the way you allocate your infinite resources during your still-finite time on this earth.

The Tuesday Takeaway
Vinko Bogataj was forever immortalized as the face of “the agony of defeat” on ABC’s Wide World of Sports. His incredible crash on a ski jump slope in 1970 became forever associated with agony and defeat. It was his misfortune that an entire generation learned to cringe and giggle at.

It’s that time of year again. That last week in July when we swear that teams lose all sense of things big and small and ship otherwise valuable prospects in exchange for late-inning relievers who will pitch a few dozen innings over the balance of the season. It’s a formula that the sabermetric community sometimes finds difficult to rationalize. Relievers pitch so few innings and are so volatile that their value is almost certainly lower than that of the prospects dealt for them.
It’s difficult to look at the trade returns for late-game specialists and understand the thought process. The Cubs seemingly traded a king’s ransom to acquire
, a pitcher whose performance is only marred by the Aroldis Chapman domestic violence charges that hang over him. Let’s not mince words either; that marring very real and deserved. For the purposes of this article, though, we're be ignoring that component of this trade, not because it doesn’t matter—it matters immensely—but because it didn’t dramatically diminish his value in the baseball world, which is what this article is about.

Chicago acquiring Aroldis Chapman from New York is a complicated, blockbuster trade on and off the field. Trevor Story adds three more home runs to his Pokédex, Jose Fernandez remains unbeatable in Miami, and Aaron Nola throws something resembling a strikeout.
The Weekend Takeaway
At this point, we should probably give his own record book. Trevor Story

The Yankees have won three games in a row, but they can’t fool us. They’re still no better than the third-best team in their division, and our
gives them a seven percent chance of reaching at least the Wild Card Game. There’s no question that this team needs to sell at the deadline, and the charade the team’s front office and ownership group are conducting through the tabloids in New York is just that. They’ll trade Playoff Odds Report and Carlos Beltran this month. It’s just a matter of time. Aroldis Chapman
For my money, though, the team shouldn’t stop there.
is the hottest name on the trade market, but only because it’s so non-controversial to suggest that an elite relief pitcher on a bad team be traded. The Yankees should trade Miller, but they shouldn’t stop there, either. The next good Yankees team, at this moment, is three or four years away. The market is shaping up perfectly, though, to allow Brian Cashman to shorten that term of mediocrity, to push the pedal to the floor and speed his team back to the brink of contention—with an organization full of young talent, this time.

An actual brightspot in the Yankees season! Be grateful for actual brightspots. History tells us the story of two lopsided trades, but History ignores some nuance--and some lessons for this trade deadline.
There are lots of cautionary tales about trading prospects for pitchers in the heat of a pennant race. Some belong specifically to certain fan bases or regions; most also belong specifically to one or another generation. There’s the deal that sent
and Derek Lowe to the Red Sox in exchange for Jason Varitek , and the one that sent Heathcliff Slocumb , Grady Sizemore , and Cliff Lee to the Indians in exchange for Brandon Phillips . More recently, there was Bartolo Colon for Scott Kazmir , and more recently still, there was Victor Zambrano for Wilson Ramos . There are tons of these, and because of that possessiveness each fan base and generation feels toward its favorites, you’re probably wondering why your personal highlight wasn’t among the ones I just rattled off. Matt Capps
I want to talk, though, about two of the highest-profile versions of this fable in history. As it happened, they occurred just three years apart, and almost 30 years ago. They’re the ones you probably conjured quickest, when you read the first sentence, even if they’re not the ones with which you identify most closely. Here they are:
