Twitter Poll: Will New York Trade Luis Severino or Aaron Judge Before August 1st?

The July 31st trading deadline will come and pass next Friday with the New York Yankees expected to be buyers. It is definitely a seller’s market this season with more teams than usual out of contention at this point, especially in the National League. Like with any trade deadline for the most part you will have to give something to get something and many are worried that New York may have to give a Luis Severino or an Aaron Judge to get a Johnny Cueto, Cole Hamels or a David Price. I have my opinions on the matter, I don’t want to trade any prospects unless the deal makes too much sense, but I was more interested in what you had to say. Sounds like the perfect Twitter Poll question to me.

Like I said in the intro, if the deal is too good to be true and it involves Severino or Judge then you obviously have to pull the trigger. The only way a deal is too good to be true is if it brings in a player that has team control left on his deal and a player who is preferably on the right side of 30 years old. Cueto is a rental and is not worth Severino or Judge in my opinion but in the same breathe Price puts the team over the top and you more or less know what you’re getting out of the durable left-handed work horse. With Cueto and Hamels you have to wonder whether they can make it in New York, how much switching to the American League from the National league will affect them, etc. It is Price or bust if you ask me, which is why I asked you.
