With less than seven hours to go before the 4 p.m. trade deadline, the Yankees are settling in for a day of talks and — they hope — deal-making. But as with last year, prices are still exorbitant, which is why the team has not yet made a trade.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman balked. Toronto wanted Deivi Garcia for Marcus Stroman; the Yankees were later amazed when the Mets snagged him for Anthony Kay, a back-end starter at best, and Simeon Woods-Richardson, a young pitcher who has upside but is years away.

So far this year, prices are similar.
