The worst part of the offseason is the waiting. The GM Meetings provided a little spark last week but not much else, and now things are pretty silent. The Yankees have several holes to fill and appear to be focused on retaining their own (specifically Hiroki Kuroda, Andy Pettitte, and Mariano Rivera) at the moment. In a week they’ll have to set their 40-man roster for the Rule 5 Draft, a week after that comes the non-tended deadline, and a few days after that will be the winter meetings. Things should pick up soon enough.
Here is your open thread for the evening. The Monday Night Football game is the Chiefs, who technically have not held a single lead all season, at the Steelers (8:30pm ET on ESPN). There are also various NBA games in action, but neither of the local clubs are playing. Talk about whatever you like here, enjoy.
It’s always a bit of a pain to come up with photos for these things, so I’m going to just embed random MLB.com video clips until I get bored and think of something else.
