Including this one, the New York Yankees have been winners in each of the last 24 seasons. That's meant 24 years of buying or staying the course at the trade deadline, as one does when one is a winner.
So go figure that doing the opposite before the August 1 deadline is exactly what the Yankees need now. This is a franchise in need of a turning point, and only by selling will it find it.

The New York Yankees are officially trade-deadline sellers. They announced as much by shipping hard-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs on Monday, per Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball.
It's an unfamiliar position for the big-spending Yanks, who are typically in the business of adding veteran pieces and keeping the switch flipped to "win now."
If the Chapman deal is any indication, however, New York can sell with the best of them.
In exchange for the Cuban southpaw, who will become a free agent after the season, the Yankees will receive prospects Gleyber ...
The New York Yankees are reportedly planning on keeping left-handed relief pitcher Andrew Miller as the Aug. 1 trade deadline approaches, per Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Yankees May Trade Aroldis Chapman Instead of Miller
Saturday, July 23
While the Bronx Bombers could trade both southpaws from the back end of their bullpen, Rosenthal noted they are “telling clubs that they are close to trading [Aroldis] Chapman” while also reporting the Miller news.
Miller has been the subject of trade rumors for much of July, and two of the top National League ...
For the New York Yankees, August 1 is looking less like the trade deadline and more like a sell-by date. By now, there's little question that selling on the summer market is what they should do.
Rather, a better question is how much they'll be able to sell.
That may be the question the Yankees are asking themselves. They're not approaching August 1 with any positive momentum. A 5-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox in the Bronx on Saturday afternoon dropped their record to 44-46. They're 9.5 games out of first in ...
With the New York Yankees (48-47) continuing to fall in the playoff standings, Aroldis Chapman's impending free agency makes him an attractive trade chip.

Nationals Interested in Chapman
Friday, July 22
Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post reported the Washington Nationals are interested in Chapman, but are not willing to get rid of top prospects Lucas Giolito, Victor Robles, Trea Turner or Reynaldo Lopez.
Svrluga reported on July 18 that the Yankees were scouting Washington's Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse.
The New York Post's George A. King III reported earlier that day that the Nationals had scouted ...
There are some skills Alex Rodriguez will never lose. He'll always be able to tell us how good he is, how hard he works, how great he can be.
"I've been working really hard, tweaking, running and training," he told reporters, including Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News. "My time will come."
Sorry, Alex. Your time has come…and gone.
I know, it's dangerous to call time on fading stars. David Ortiz was done in April and May 2009, except that he's made five more All-Star teams since then, was a World ...
New York Yankees slugger Mark Teixeira reached a notable milestone Sunday, swatting his 400th career home run during his team's game against the San Diego Padres.
Major League Baseball's official Twitter account broke the news after Teixeira's solo shot off Carlos Villanueva in the top of the eighth inning:
Teixeira's achievement was a welcome bright spot amid what was otherwise a forgettable day to compound a disappointing 2016 campaign. The three-time All-Star raised his average to .188 with his sixth homer of the year after striking out in each of his three ...
NEW YORK — In the seats behind home plate, scouts from rival teams ogle the relief pitchers the New York Yankees haven't yet decided to sell. Just the other day, the Chicago Cubs had three scouts at Yankee Stadium, enough so each could have focused in on just one of the late-inning relievers who could change the trade market and perhaps Cubs history.
On the concourses behind the seats, racks full of T-shirts with the "No Runs DMC" logo the Yankees created to market those relievers sit waiting for customers. But instead ...
New York Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran left the field during Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Texas Rangers because of tightness in his right hamstring. An exact return date has yet to be revealed.

Beltran Comments on Recovery
Thursday, June 30
ESPN.com's Wallace Matthews noted that Beltran said his hamstring is feeling better, and although he will take batting practice on Thursday, he is unsure if he will be available to pinch hit against the Texas Ranges.

Hours after the Texas Rangers released Ike Davis from his minor league contract, the first baseman agreed to ink a major league contract with the New York Yankees, according to Today's Knuckleball's Jon Heyman.
Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News confirmed the report.
Following four seasons with the New York Mets, Davis was dealt to the Pittsburgh Pirates a few months into the 2014 season. While he was afforded the opportunity to shine over the course of 397 plate appearances, he floundered to the tune of a .235 batting average, 10 home ...
