Predicting the plans that Yankees general manager Brian Cashman may have for the MLB trade deadline can be very difficult. No one ever truly knows what he will do next, and he surprised us all numerous times during the offseason and spring training.
Cashman tends to hold his thoughts and ideas in, and then spring them on us in a way in which we could not have imagined.
