Now Ivan Nova's gone.

Yahoo Sports reports the following:

"The retooling New York Yankees have dealt right-hander Ivan Nova to the Pittsburgh Pirates for two players to be named...

With only 5 minutes left before deadline, Nova thought: 'OK, I'm not going to get traded, I'm going to stay here.'

He was running on treadmill in weight room when Yanks bullpen catcher Ramon Rodriguez told him about trade and then he saw his name on TV. And then Yanks pitching coach Larry Rothschild informed Nova.

'Hopefully I can put it together over there,' Nova said.

Nova rejoins former Yanks catcher Francisco Cervelli with Pirates."

And I like the way Nova approached that.  He understands this is a business and while he'll miss being in New York, he probably understands that he still has a job, and with Cervelli and a change of scenery, maybe he can improve.

Another trade.  Wow, what the Yankees are doing is unbelievable... and for the better.
