The Winter Meetings came and went this week in Nashville, Tennessee. To most baseball minds, the Winter Meetings failed to sizzle and big names stayed on the market, at least for now. Unfortunately, the New York Yankees barely made any noise during the meetings, neglecting to make offers to players like Jeff Keppinger, Eric Chavez, and even Andruw Jones is going to Japan. Plus, they have to find a new third baseman due to another hip surgery looming in the wings for Alex Rodriguez. So, where do the Yankees go from here?
On this show, I spoke with Jason Martinez from MLBDepthCharts.com about the Winter Meetings and what to expect from the Yankees going forward. Jason hosts a show on MLB Depth Charts with Ben Nicholson-Smith of MLB Trade Rumors called Rosters and Rumblings on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Friday each week.
On this show, we discuss the following topics:
- Yankees’ pursuit of Kevin Youkilis
- The $189 million issue
- Yankees kicking tires on Josh Hamilton?
- The Texas Rangers‘ quest to rule the Winter
- Boston’s Offseason
- Where do Hamilton and Zack Greinke end up?
- Are Brian Cashman’s hands tied up?
