Last week I wrote that acquiring Sonny Gray would have to little to no consequence for the Yankees in the 2017 playoffs. My argument was the Pinstripes lack the top-level starting pitching to match up with the Astros, Indians, and Red Sox over the course of a five or seven-game series.
In response the Yankees acquired both Sonny Gray and Jaime Garcia at the deadline. Now in the 2017 interim, I don’t think either of these moves greatly improves the Yankees odds of reaching the World Series. In the end, neither Gray nor Garcia, skyrockets confidence come playoff time.

I’ll start off by saying as a Rutgers alum and a jersey sports addict, I’m a big fan of Todd Frazier. However Frazier, who has gotten most of the press in last week’s deal with the White Sox, will not be the difference in the AL East. The multi player trade where the Yankees gave up young prospect Blake Rutherford, was more about bolstering the bullpen than bringing in Frazier.
