Alderson & Cashman Talk Trade Deadline

The Yankees beat Johan Santana and the Mets in the 2012 Subway Series opener last night, but before the game each club's GM answered questions about the upcoming trade deadline. Let's round up their quotes…

  • "If we're in the race, as I expect we will be, I don't believe that money is going to be an issue for us," said Mets GM Sandy Alderson when asked about making additions during a chat with fans at "We'll be looking for ways to help the ballclub. It's very possible we'll still need help in the bullpen at that time, but there may be some other areas of need that will emerge and we'll have to address."
  • In a chat with fans, Yankees GM Brian Cashman said his "preference would be not to do anything" at the trade deadline. "You'd like to have everything here in front of you, but that's never the case," he added. "So right now it's way too early to tell you what's lacking … It's too early for me to say what we're looking for (at the deadline) just yet, if anything."
