New York Yankees Trade Rumors: Latest Updates and Reaction

Joba Chamberlain hasn't given the Yankees much to smile about this season.

While the Yankees have done a remarkable job of mixing and matching to remain in shouting distance of a playoff spot, the team approaches the trade deadline with more questions than answers.

There's no question that the team needs bats, and the chances of acquiring a player capable of producing like Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez can are slim. 

But there's no way of knowing how much production that trio will be able to provide when they are healthy enough to return to the lineup, which finds Brian Cashman in a difficult spot.

Does he roll the dice on the current 25-man roster, believing that trio's addition will be enough to not only clinch a playoff spot but also give the team a legitimate shot of making a deep playoff run?

Or will he look to make a more substantial move, trading for an impact bat to not only bolster the lineup but also serve as insurance if the returning stars aren't able to produce as the team has become accustomed to?

There's also a third, less popular option. The Yankees may decide 2013 simply isn't their year and become sellers, dealing away veteran pieces and expiring contracts for younger, less established talent with an eye toward 2014 and beyond.

Things are going to get interesting in the Bronx over the next few weeks, and this is the place to find the latest rumors involving the Yankees, along with analysis of and reaction to any rumored or completed deals.
