Next week is the Winter Meetings, but I think the GM’s forgot that. So much happened yesterday, and today has picked up in the same way.
The Tigers have agreed to sign Joe Nathan to a 2 year deal. The Yankees were said to be interested in the closer, and now they’re believed to be interested in Grant Balfour. I don’t see that at all, considering Balfour’s character issues.
The Rays will acquire Ryan Hanigan from the Reds, in what is thought to be a three-way deal. There’s no word yet on the third team or what will be heading to the Reds. The Rays are notorious for not trading within the division, so I doubt the Yankees are involved.
