As general managers across Major League Baseball prepare for the final minutes of the official 2023 trading season, New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman knows, better than most, that one of these deals could effect a franchise for decades to come. On July 31, 2003, Cashman made one of those trades.
When a Major League Baseball general manager fires a support coach, managers get a little nervous. When that specific general manager has never done that before, in his career, and does it, well nervous is most definitely an understatement.
If New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman wants to add to his World Championship legacy in the Bronx, then he needs play some of his precious prospect-cards, now.

Few people can relate to what Domingo German did against the Oakland A's on Wednesday night. Most are aware that German was only the 24th pitcher in Major League Baseball history to pitch a perfect game. The 16th pitcher to do it was sitting by, enjoying every pitch.
The is little doubt that Aaron Judge is the New York Yankees most valuable player. As actor/comedian Bill Murray described himself to his army troop in the movie "Stripes", Judge is the Yankees' big toe.
Last season, when New York Yankees' GM Brian Cashman traded with the St. Louis Cardinals for an injured Harrison Bader, some fans were up-in-arms. A quality left-handed starting pitcher for a guy on the injured list?
Darryl Strawberry was one of the most talented baseball players to have played the game in the last 50 years. His smooth powerful swing launched home runs into the atmosphere with ease and even grace. However, his well-documented battles off the field took away any shot at being recognized as a Hall of Famer.
Injuries have piled up for the New York Yankees this season. However, Carlos Rodón, Giancarlo Stanton and Josh Donaldson are all getting closer to returning to the Major League roster. That leaves the question, which players will be going?
