The slow early-offseason for the Yankees continued with no moves today, but that will definitely change tomorrow. Tuesday is the deadline for teams to set their 40-man roster for next month’s Rule 5 Draft, and the two most prominent prospects New York must protect are right-hander Brett Marshall and left-hander Nik Turley. It’s also possible that lefty Manny Banuelos will need to be protected as well, but don’t hold me to that. It’s tough to figure out when some of the international guys are Rule 5 eligible because we don’t know the exact date they signed. The Yankees have seven open 40-man spots right now but they won’t use them all for prospects. They still have to bring in a right fielder, a catcher, at least one starter, and most of a bench. The 40-man is clogged up with enough fringy prospects as it is.
Anyway, here is your open thread for the night. The Bears and 49ers are your Monday Night Football game, plus there’s various NBA action as well. Still no NHL games though because everyone involved in that mess is dumb. Talk about whatever you like here, enjoy.
