Yankees manager Joe Girardi stated what everyone could see. Luis Severino has pitched like the team's ace, having gone 6-4 with a 3.21 ERA, while Masahiro Tanaka is 5-7 with a 5.37 has not.

It seems unlikely at this point that Kyrie Irving will land in New York. Here's why: Carmelo Anthony's top choice in any trade, as of late Tuesday night, is to end up with the Houston Rockets, per league sources. Basically, nothing has changed since ESPN's Adrian Wojanarowski reported over a week ago that Anthony still expected the Knicks to carry out their previous plans to trade him to Houston. So Anthony has prioritized Houston over Cleveland and the Knicks, at the moment, are unwilling to include Kristaps Porzingis in a trade for Irving. So unless things change, Irving-to-New York is a long shot.
