Winter Meetings open thread: 12/7/15

wintermeetings Welcome to the Winter Meetings open thread!

Let's recap what's happened so far:

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.

Update 1:35 P.M.: Mark Lowe and the Tigers worked out a deal worth two years/$13M per Ken Rosenthal.
