A few minor Yankee stories have hit the tubes today, so here's a quick and dirty bullet list. I'm going to link to several new Yankee blogs you'll be able to find on my blog roll for the coverage.
And one from MLBTR
- Peter Gammons pretty much echoes my sentiments. The Yanks and Sox really think they've offered too much for Santana and they're both hoping the Mets sweeten their package and land Johan.
In other baseball news, Billy Beane has continued to dismantle the A's, shipping Nick Swisher to the White Sox
for two very highly regarded prospects, Gio Gonzalez and Fautino De Los Santos along with Ryan Sweeney. Swisher will probably play a sub-par center field for the ChiSox, who appear to be making a big move to stay relevant in the A.L. Central. It's going to be a tall order with the Indians remaining intact and the Tigers landing Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis at the Winter Meetings.
