Yankees 11, Cleveland 4

. . . with the kid, Hughes, holding down a 2-0 lead in the sixth.

And maybe Berkman on the way.

In Blackjack, this would be a double-down moment.

The Berkman deal is best summarized by Joel Sherman (NYPost):

" They(Yankees) targeted teams desperate to move huge contracts, hoping that merely being able to take on money in a tight market would enable them to get a desirable player for a limited prospect return.

They were following a blueprint executed four years to the day earlier. On July 30, 2006, the Yankees obtained Bobby Abreu from the Phillies and only had to give up four nondescript prospects because they were assuming the rest of his sizeable contract."
