07:31 AM ET 09.13 | Righty Phil Hughes rejoined the Yankees' rotation on Thursday night in a transaction that almost wasn't. [If] things had turned out differently, the start might have gone to Nationals right-hander Dan Haren. The Yankees and Nationals talked about a trade involving Haren last weekend but never got close to a deal, major league sources tell FOX Sports. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman declined to confirm the Haren discussions on Thursday, but he did not deny that the team has continued to seek upgrades. "We haven't stopped trying to improve," Cashman said. "We've always been open to different things, pursuing different things. It started all the way back in March, when all the injuries hit." Late Tuesday night, the Yankees obtained shortstop Brendan Ryan from the Mariners for a player to be named.

Too bad Vlad formally retired, the Yanks could have tried him at SS.

Manny is still available.......I'd chip in a few $ to see that guy play short

I wonder if he'd try to cut off throws from third to first?

I have no idea how this team is only one game out of the WCJoe really has done a great job, with all the injuries, handling arod, shaky starting rotation, etc

I never write the Yanks off until they're mathematically eliminated, and they just took the O's to school recently.

Don't do anything stupid now Brian. Not for a one game play off hope. Anything this year is gravy....

I feel like we're like an inner tube of a bicycle tire that's 90% patch. What the hell, one more patch can't hurt.

It's because the Rays gone 5-13 over their last 18. They are pulling Red Sox.

Agreed. Ride it out and take stock of things this winter.

KC is coming on strong too lately. But yeah, TB is struggling.

This team is a joke. Wells, Suzuki, Youklis, Hafner, Hughes, Joba, Overbay etc...

I am a Yankee fan and cannot watch them. Girardi did a Houdini job this season, because this team photo looks like a "Whatever Happened to..." ad.

Then you're not a real fan.. they are trying to get under the luxury tax of $189 million- that means they have to not sign big free agents for a couple of years and just sign fill in guys...Cano being the exception. Hughes, Joba, Hafner, Youk, Mo, Overbay...all will be gone in 2014.

The Rays have been playing down to their level lately.

They need to continue to seek players, because they don't have a farm system.
