Winter Meetings, Day 1

There is one developing story that will take up most of the bandwidth in Yankees Universe today, and it has to do with a potential blockbuster trade involving the Yankees, DBacks, and Tigers. Heres how Ken Rosenthal, via MLBTR lays it out:

The deal would send Curtis Granderson to the Yanks, along with a prospect or two from the D'Backs. Arizona would obtain Edwin Jackson from the Tigers and Ian Kennedy from the Yankees. The Tigers would obtain Max Scherzer from the D'Backs and Austin Jackson, Phil Coke and Michael Dunn from the Yanks.

Seems fair to me, but Buster Olney is saying that "one team" is not satisfied...who do you think would hang up the phone on that trade?

In other news:

  • The Yankees traded Brian Bruney to the Nats for the first pick in the Rule 5 draft. Who the Yanks will target with the pick is anyones guess, but at least it got Brian Fucking Bruney out of the bulpen
  • Negotiations have started between the Yankees and Andy Pettitte. I will ruin the suspense for you: Andy is going to sign, and it will be for around $11 million.
  • As expected, the Yankees are mentioned in rumors for just about everybody, so I am not listing them all here. 99% of the time it's just another douchebag agent trying to drive up the price of their client.

There should be a lot of activity on day 2, so stay tuned to MLBTR for all your offseason needs.
