Checking in on the reactions to the Montas and Trivino trade

Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/ The Yankees gave up some solid prospects for perhaps the best remaining starter on the market and a reliever with upside. The Yankees didn’t wait until the last waning minutes of the deadline to make what might be their biggest splash. Yesterday, they acquired starting pitcher Frankie Montas and reliever Lou Trivino from the Oakland Athletics for JP Sears and prospects Ken Waldichuk, Luis Medina, and Cooper Bowman. The Yankees undeniably needed to shore up their pitching staff for the playoff run. The consensus appears that they did just...

A look at the new Yankee, Frankie

A look at the new Yankee, Frankie

Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/ A deeper dive into the talented starter who the Yankees picked up from Oakland yesterday. On Monday afternoon, the Yankees struck a big deal with the often sell-happy Oakland Athletics. New York sent JP Sears, infield prospect Cooper Bowman, and pitching prospects Ken Waldichuk and Luis Medina. As has been well-covered by now, the Yanks received reliever Lou Trivino and right-handed starter Frankie Montas. Montas is a fairly well-established, hard-throwing starter, with a few years of fairly significant success behind him. The Yankees wanted...

Yankees potential trade target: Scott Effross

Yankees potential trade target: Scott Effross

Photo by Chase Agnello-Dean/ Scott Effross has quietly been one of the best relievers in the National League this season and would make sense for the Yankees. Will Chicago be willing to discuss him, though? As we have said many times, bullpen help isn’t the Yankees biggest need. If they can get the best version of Jonathan Loáisiga and help Aroldis Chapman regain some consistency, they should have an elite unit headlined by Clay Holmes, Michael King, Wandy Peralta, Lucas Luetge, and another group of potential contributors like Albert Abreu, JP Sears, and Clarke...
