NY is only three games behind Boston, and would be in the Wild Card game if the season ended today.
The message hardly needed further translation: the Bombers had made a decision to go for it.
They actually didn't get as much as people would have thought, but they were also dealing a would be free agent in Frazier and an overpaid reliever in Robertson.
Rutherford, along with former RiverDogs pitcher Ian Clarkin was dealt in exchange for another former RiverDogs pitcher, White Sox closer David Robertson, along with Todd Frazier and Tommy Kahnle. They managed to hold onto their tip-top prospects (Gleyber Torres and Clint Frazier) and dealt from a position of strength (with a glut of outfielders already on the roster or on the way). Below are all the latest reported deals leading up to and including the trade deadline. Jose Abreu and Avasil Garcia are possible trade commodities, but yet again the market value for both are low, even if they are having productive years. They're familiar with Robertson after he pitched for them from 2008-2014, taking over as closer when Mariano Rivera retired. He left Monday's game in Kansas City with a back issue, but obviously that wasn't enough of a deterrent for the Snakes, whose primary outfielders are now Martinez, A.J. Pollock and David Peralta. But he'll be able to spell Aroldis Chapman when he needs a night off, too.
86-year-old jewel thief busted again, this time at Walmart
Payne was arrested and taken to Chamblee jail on charges of theft by shoplifting, then later released after posting bail. In the film, she boasted about her extensive career as a thief. "She never hurts anybody", the attorney said.
Where does the Yankees' farm system rank after this deal? Kahnle has since evolved, however, and was averaging 15 strikeouts per nine innings with the White Sox.
Frazier will probably spend some time at first base with the Yankees since Greg Bird is expected to be sidelined for a minimum of six weeks after undergoing surgery to remove an excess bone growth from his right ankle. He's projected to return in time for spring training and will be given a head start to reclaim the job.
Robertson is a familiar face in NY, and he pitched well for the Yankees before opting out and signing a big contract with the White Sox as a free agent. It depends on what Cashman sees in the next two-plus months.
It was worth a shot for the Yankees when they brought him over a year ago, but Clippard is one of the most-worked relievers in the game this decade.
Pakistan targets ISIL in operation along Afghan border
He said the "Khyber 4" operation, backed by the air force, would focus on the mountainous Rajgal Valley area in Khyber Agency. He says Pakistan has informed Afghan authorities and urged them to take similar measures on their side of the border.
With the addition of Rutherford, the White Sox now possess 10 of the Top 100 prospects in baseball according to MLB.com (all in the top 68), the most in the major leagues.
- It kept Frazier and Robertson away from Boston.
The GM has given Joe Girardi the tools to score runs, preserve leads and otherwise remain competitive with just about everyone except the Astros, who now the majors' best team after the Dodgers. After 2017, he's still under control for three more seasons until 2021. It took some finesse, but it appears the GM succeeded.
Will the Yankees make another trade before the 2017 Major League Baseball trade deadline on July 31?

Losing the first Test was a shock to us but the way we bounced back was only because of the team culture created at that stage. He played two Test matches for India and had only 4 wickets to show for his efforts.
