Per Joel Abraham Sweeny Heyman Olney III, we find out that Cashman was also busy working the phones right before the trade deadline. Reportedly, there was a seven team trade on the table which would have netted the Yanks:
- Yuniesky Bentancourt
- Josh Fogg
- Angel Berroa (again!!!)
- Jason Kendall
- the current New York Mets outfield
- Ruben Rivera
In return for this bounty, the Yanks were planning to send a package involving Kei Igawa, a box of Papa John's pizza, and a collection of Michael Bay DVD's. Alas, the deal fell apart because the Yanks are reportedly exercising fiscal restrain these days. Boldness requires money.

Very funny, Nick
Especially the part about “boldness requires money”.
Damn. I really, really, really want you guys to have Josh Fogg.
Any Red Sox fan reading this should be thankful that Cashman wasn’t able to pull off this deal.
It would have clearly made the Yanks scary good and not only the odds-on favorite to win the World Series but also to bring back the glory days of the late 1990s.
