The Yankees don’t have much more business left to take care of this offseason, aside from that whole starting pitcher thing of course. They signed their last three arbitration-eligible players today, and eventually the pre-arbitration guys will have their contracts renewed at something close to the league minimum. The Rafael Soriano signing is now official (according to a press release), and it seems like Andruw Jones will be in the fold soon enough. Otherwise, that’s pretty much it. They might look at some utility infielders, but I wouldn’t expect any major moves at all, even on the starting pitching side. All that’s left of the offseason is to just ride it out, sit around and wait for pitchers and catchers to report in about four weeks. The dog days of January are no fun.
Anyways, here is your open thread for the evening. Not one of the local hockey or basketball teams are playing tonight, which pretty much sucks. Talk about whatever your heart desires.
