The New York Yankees are currently sitting in 3rd place in the American League East. They are, however, just four and a half games behind the division leading Toronto Blue Jays and one and a half games behind the second place Baltimore Orioles. They still have a chance to win the division and now with the second wild card spot have a very good chance at advancing to the post season.
In order to accomplish these feats however they have some weaknesses to cover prior to the post season, actually within the next three weeks before the July 31 trade deadline. Like most teams the Yankees need to look at their pitching and infield and, surprisingly, their offense. The Yanks have the resources to get who they need to fill the holes they are currently playing with. Leaving only the question, will other teams part with the players they should want?
