Once upon a time, Nick Swisher was an underrated acquisition by the Yankees

This trade deadline, everyone is going to be paying attention to the big names, the game-changers that will be on the move.  Guys like Zack Greinke, Cole Hamels, Matt Garza and Ryan Dempster, guys that can single-handedly determine the outcome of not only a division race, but a postseason series.  

But sometimes, it's the moves we don't pay attention to that really make the difference.  For example, in 2010 the Giants picked up Cody Ross, who then led them to the 2010 World Series title and earned the series MVP award.  Not Tim Lincecum, not Matt Cain, not Brian Wilson, but the underrated Cody Ross.

So, which underrated players could the 2012 Yankees pick up to help them in their quest for ring No. 28?  This is a good team, currently the best in baseball, but every team has its weakness, and these four players would each play an important role in New York if Brian Cashman can get them there.
