The Yankees officially dropped one game below .500 after Wednesday night. That leaves the team in an awkward state, with general manager Brian Cashman needing to figure out what to do at the August 1st trade deadline.
If they do decided to be sellers, the Yankees might have the most coveted player when the trade market rolls around: Andrew Miller. The left is under contract for two more seasons, and lefty relievers are a rare commodity. It's an area of depth, and if they are trying to avoid a full rebuild, moving Miller might allow them to retool without blowing it all up.
