Cashman Not Done

With less than 48 hours until the trade deadline, Joe Torre knows that the team with which he is currently going to battle could very well be the one that he takes into the final two months of the season.
General manager Brian Cashman continues to work the phones, but the market remains a tough one. There are some big-name sluggers out there (with hefty price tags to match their salaries), but the pitching market is slim, making it difficult for the Yankees to find many sensible matches.

Milwaukee's trade of Carlos Lee to Texas may have set the stage for players such as Alfonso Soriano and Bobby Abreu to move over the weekend, but it appears doubtful that New York would be in the mix for either of them, as Washington and Philadelphia are asking for blue chip prospects such as Philip Hughes.

Torre and Cashman speak "a minimum of six or eight times" each day, as the GM has kept his manager in the loop with all trade discussions. Even as his team tries to fill holes left by injuries in the outfield and searches for a consistent fifth starter, Torre feels comfortable with the team he has right now.

With Mike Mussina, Randy Johnson and Chien-Ming Wang giving the Yankees consistency in the first three spots in the rotation, Torre believes that his team has the necessary pieces to get the job done as it is currently constructed.
