Open Thread: GM Meetings Day TwoBy
Unsurprisingly, there wasn’t much Yankees-related news out of the GM Meetings in California today. They’re reportedly not in on Justin Upton and unwilling to offer Torii Hunter more than one year, which could just be a negotiating ploy for all we know. Infielder Maicer Izturis signed a three-year, $9M contract with the Blue Jays a few hours after I wrote about him as a potential bench option for the Yankees. I figured someone would pay him starter-ish money. He was always a long shot for New York. Once the deadline for players accept/reject qualifying offers passes tomorrow, things should pick up a bit since the Yankees will know who exactly they have to replace.
Here is your open thread for the night. The NFL game is the Colts at the Jaguars, plus there’s some NBA action on somewhere. Talk about whatever you like here (no politics!), so have at it.
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.
