You do realize that in order to get really good roster upgrades, the Yankees will have to give up really good talent, right?

I'll let you in on the secret: none of these trades are remotely close to fair for the other team.

DRob trade is good. The rest not so much.

Hey stat book, Rick Hahn accepts that trade in .03 seconds.

These are all horrible. Alonso could bring back a better package. Robertson could as well, but I don't think the Yankees would think about bringing him back. I don't know if you posted this before or after Colon signed with the Twins, but I don't think it would have been a good idea, if he was getting smashed in Atlanta, he would be clobbered in New York. I doubt the Yankees make a trade with the Blue Jays, and Chris Carter was DFA'd before you posted this.

DFA'd and released are two different concepts.

I am well aware of that, but I think this time he will get released at the end of it.
