The Yankees waited out the rain and extended their win streak by beating Oakland.
As the trade deadline draws closer, the Yankees are a little thin with their rotation. Brian Cashman claims a trade will be tough.
Chien-Ming Wang got a second opinion on his sore shoulder and a third is coming.This notebook also has updates on Brian Bruney, Andrew Brackman, Damaso Marte and a unique one-hitter in the minors.
The stats for Brackman: 1-11 with a 6.72 ERA in 18 starts in low A ball. He has struck out 79 over 85.2 innings. But he also has walked 64, thrown 22 wild pitches and given up 89 hits.
Can the Yankees trade him to the Knicks? Maybe David Lee can pitch.
