25th in runs scored. We need hitting , right now.
Big target: Adam Dunn.
Would be interesting to see if Cincinnati would take Kotsay or Stewart for him , because "they play the right way" and "they hustle".
Otherwise , maybe plunder Thome as a rental from the White Sox , or try for Johnny Gomes from Tampa Bay.
Longshot: trade for Glaus and move him to SS.
What would be fantastic , is if the Yankees fall out of contention completely before the deadline , they have tonnes of hitting to offer for.
Kendall , Kennedy , Kotsay , Stewart , Embree - when Street & Duch return , Crosby , Dan Johnson , DiNardo. Minor league relief if we deal with Cin. Actually a mop standing in a wheelie bucket with an As jersey on , and paper plate stuck to it with a smiley face - call it a closer and Krivsky will take it.
