Brendan Bowers and Matt Moro join Tara Sledjeski for this week's edition of On Deck.

The Yankees lead in the AL East has evaporated but the Pinstripes have an oportunity for revenge this weekend. After being swept at the hands of the Blue Jays last week at home, the Yanks are in Toronto for a three game set, walking into a Jays squad that has won 11 in a row and has a half game lead in the division. The crew discusses whether the Yankees did enough at the trade deadline and whether the Blue Jays can stay as hot as they've been.

Meanwhile the Met's offense has taken off in August, leading to 11 wins in their last 13 games. The Amazin's just finished off a sweep of the Rockies, and Tara, Brendan, and Matt take a look at how the recent additions to the team have helped lead the resurrgence at the plate.
