MLB Trade Deadline officially over and both New York baseball teams made moves. Some were made for this season, others for the future. New York is a city in which every fan wants there team to win now. Take a look at some of the trades made from the New York Yankees and Mets according to ESPN.
- Traded OF Carlos Beltran to Texas for RHPs Dillon Tate, Erik Swanson and Nick Green, and RHP Ivan Nova to Pittsburgh for two players to be named.
- Traded LHP Andrew Miller to Cleveland for OF Clint Frazier, LHP Justus Sheffield and RHPs Ben Heller and J.P. Feyereisen. Traded RHP Vicente Campos to Arizona for RHP Tyler Clippard.

- Traded All-Star outfielder Jay Bruce from the Cincinnati Reds for infielder Dilson Herrera and minor league left-hander Max Wotell
- Traded Antonio Bastardo for starting pitcher Jon Niese
Based on these trades, the Yankees are ready for the future than the Mets. Sure the Mets still have a very good pitching and possibly got better offensively acquiring Jay Bruce. But the Yankees are going for the future. They waved the white flag trading their best players away, and will still compete until the last game of the season. Mets on the other hand going all in, hoping an offensive spark elevates them to another postseason berth.
In this case, the Mets are better than the Yankees after the deadline. Who do you think got better?
