Quick Bits: Winter Meetings (pt.3)
Okay, so there were quite a few news items as the Yankees dealt for Granderson.
- Even though the Yanks are getting Curtis Granderson, the team may still consider Johnny Damon.
- The White Sox, like the Angels, are interested in Hideki Matsui but they want him to play the OF/DH.
- The Yankees will meet with many agents this week, including Casey Close, Ben Sheets’ representation.
- The Cardinals might be close to bowing out of the Matt Holliday sweepstakes, according to Jayson Stark.
- The Braves will trade Rafael Soriano after he accepted arbitration yesterday. The Yanks aren’t interested.
- In a shocking non-player move, Peter Gammons will be leaving ESPN for the MLB Network (that’s big).
Back with more later. Stay tuned.
