Brian Cashman's Trade History on July 31st

Brian Cashman has been the General Manager of the New York Yankees since the 1998 season so you would think that he has made his fair share of last-minute July 31st trade deadline trades. Right? Well, not really. While he hasn't made an absolute ton of trades on this day he has made a few notable ones and some trades that ended up being big in the grand scheme of things. Let's showcase those here as we wait for the Yankees and Rays game here in a couple of hours.

July 312003 traded Brandon Claussen and Charlie Manning to the Cincinnati Reds for Aaron Boone

Hello 2003 ALCS against the Boston Red Sox.

July 312003 traded Robin Ventura to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Scott Proctor and Bubba Crosby

Joe Torre thanks you for Proctor and Cashman used Crosby to kind of get Johnny Damon to sign. Well that and a blank check. 2009 World Series regardless.

July 312006 traded Shawn Chacon to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Craig Wilson

For a long time Chacon was my favorite Yankees pitcher. Don't know why I just like the way the guy threw the ball and got guys out. Rooting for the underdog maybe?

July 312007 traded Scott Proctor to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Wilson Betemit

Joe Torre cried a bit inside...

July 312008 traded Alberto Gonzalez to the Washington Nationals for Jhonny Nunez

Who and who?

July 312009 traded Chase Weems to the Cincinnati Reds for Jerry Hairston

See above from the 2009 World Series. That's Jerry Hairston Jr.

July 312010 traded Mark Melancon and Jimmy Paredes to the Houston Astros for Lance Berkman

DUMB move here but you take the good with the bad I guess with Cashman.

July 312010 traded Matt Cusick and Andrew Shive to the Cleveland Indians for Kerry Wood

This guy was amazing for us in a small sample size.

July 312012 traded Chad Qualls to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Casey McGehee

Minor. Yet Effective.

July 312014 traded Kelly Johnson to the Boston Red Sox for Stephen Drew

Stephen Drew Sucks!

July 312014 traded Peter O’Brien to the Arizona Diamondbacks for Martin Prado

Good, for a while.

You know how many trades Brian Cashman has made on August 1st during his tenure as a Yankees GM? None. Zilch. Nada. Hopefully that changes tomorrow.
