The trade deadline has come and gone, and the New York Yankees haven't, well, done much. They went out to plug some holes in the team, but those holes are still there for the most part.
Injuries have wrecked the Yankees throughout the season. They've done a good job of covering those losses with an American League-best 60-42 record. All of those injuries, however, might have finally caught up to them, for out of their last 10 games, the Yankees lost seven of them.
While I personally like the Ichiro trade, the Yankees could've done more to bolster their chances at making the World Series. The other playoff-bound teams in the American League have made major moves while the Yankees made minor additions.
The Yankees struck out at the trade deadline this season. They could've done more but instead opted to make minor adjustments. Those adjustments might not be enough to get them to the World Series.
