The New York Yankees are active in waiver market, but not for the reasons you would assume.

Peter Gammons tweeted out that both the Yankees and Baltimore Orioles "are claiming everyone" on trade waivers:

Seeing as how both teams haven't done much recently to add to their roster, it's obvious this is a strategic move for the Yankees and O's.

New York is chasing several teams in the hunt for the wild card, as the Orioles' lead looks insurmountable in the American League East. It makes perfect sense to stop the teams in front of you from getting better.

And, who knows, maybe the Yankees strike some gold with one claim and actually improve one of their remaining holes, of which there are still too many.

Seeing your team play in the SuperBowl is priceless. Watching the SuperBowl live in the stands for $1 per week is beyond priceless. Find out how at, the future of Championship Tickets. Tags: American League East, Baltimore Orioles, Baseball, MLB, New York, New York Yankees, Peter Gammons
