New York Yankees: Grading the Bombers Recent Deals at the Trading Deadline

The month of June is almost over and yet somehow, the Yankees are in first place.

The same Yankees who have dropped 8-of-9 to the Boston Red Sox head-to-head.

The same Yankees who have Derek Jeter, Bartolo Colon, Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain, Pedro Feliciano, Rafael Soriano and Damaso Marte all on the disabled list.

The same Yankees who had Jorge Posada asking out of the lineup because he was going to bat ninth.

The same Yankees who had Posada hitting under .200 and Nick Swisher batting around .215 at one point.

Yet, not only are the Yankees in first place of the American League East, but have the best record in the American League as well.

But is this a complete team? Not even close. This team has obvious holes that need to be filled if they want to compete for a championship.

July is always an active time for teams to make a move considering the non-waiver trading deadline is July 31.

This especially goes for the Yankees.

Over the last 11 years, the Yankees have been very active in the month of July. We'll take a look back at the Yankees history of the Bombers making deals at the deadline and see if they worked out for them.
