Let's recap what's happened so far:
- Aroldis Chapman was officially traded to the Dodgers for two prospects. And barring any medical maladies, the deal will be finalized soon.
- Trevor Cahill is returning to the Cubs. The details of that deal have not been publicized yet but Buster Olney had it first. (Update: $4.25M over 1 year)
Just a quick interruption here but I always picture the national writers, like Jon Heyman, Ken Rosenthal, Olney et al, running around the Winter Meetings and pushing each other out of the way to get scoops. Personally, I'm not sure why they even bother when Chris Cotillo of SB Nation gets 95% of them.
- Jon Morosi of Fox Sports reported that the "budget tight" Yankees, you know, the team we all root for, may be interested in Asdrubal Cabrera and that Cabrera might be willing to play 2B. Seriously, what the hell did Rob Refsnyder do to the guys in the front office? I want to know.
- And finally, for the second year in a row, no one was voted into the Hall of Fame by the veterans' committee. Oh well.
If any Yankee news breaks, we will have it for you.
