      I actually played this game with my 11-year old son this weekend:

      Donaldson or Headley, who would you rather have?
      Tulo or Gregorius, who would you rather have?
      Price or Sabathia, who would you rather have?
      Joey Bats or Beltran, who would you rather have?
      Stephen Drew or anybody, who would you rather have?

      Really, the only edge the Yankees have is 1B, and, maybe, a little, as of now, at DH. Our juicer there is a little better than their juicer. (LF and CF, all combined, may just be a push.) And, the Jays pen is now improved too.

      Really, at this point, the Jays have so much more talent than the Yankees. It’s not even close. And, I think the Yankees brass knows it – and their goal is the wildcard.

      Maybe the third time, if you consider what’s going on with the Mets and Nats in the NL East.

      The Nats led the Mets by 3 as recently at 12 days ago.

      Speaking of the Mets, if you were the Yankees and the Mets called and said “We would like to trade you OUR 40 man roster in exchange for YOUR 40 man roster, straight up, no strings” how fast would you say yes?

      Change it to starting rotation, and I’d say yes very fast.

      But…Cashman knows pitching!

      The Yankee pitching is fine long-term. But the Mets short and middle-term pitching is going to be extraordinary if they stay healthy.
