The July 31st trade deadline is one of my favorite times of the year. Its that point where every baseball fan seems to break out their general manager business suit, and propose ideas that you’d never fathom, for better or for worse. I’ve always been reluctant to take trade chatter seriously, but it’s also easy [...]
Looking back at last year’s trade deadline, the big name connected with the Yankees was starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez. Supposedly, the Rockies wanted a package of Jesus Montero, Ivan Nova, Manny Banuelos, and Dellin Betances. As ridiculous as that sounds, initial prices are meant [...]
As the trade deadline approached, I became increasingly confident that the Yankees were going to be spectators.

Let’s keep the Mania going and punch Ubaldo Jimenez into one of my favorite tools in all of the baseball internet land: the the Trade Value Calculator from Beyond the Boxscore.
When we punch Ubaldo into there–using his current fWAR and splitting his salary in half for simplicity’s sake–while incorporating the [...]
…there are other things going on in the Yankee trade-o-sphere aside from the Ubaldo Jimenez mania. Here’s a few hits from the last few days…
How the mighty have fallen. Just a year ago Ubaldo Jimenez was as untouchable a player as there was in all of baseball. He posted back-to-back months with an ERA well below 1.00 in April and May, and many analysts were suggesting that he was the game’s best pitcher. He floundered in the [...]
