MLB Winter Meetings 2013: Day Two open thread

Maddie Meyer

The Winter Meetings kicked off in Orlando yesterday but it was mostly quiet on the transaction front. Roy Halladay signed a one-day contract with Toronto so he could retire as a member of the Blue Jays, the Shin-Soo Choo sweepstakes seemed to reach fever pitch but nothing was finalized, and the Angels seem to be discussing trades for Mark Trumbo.

It's not a huge surprise that the first day didn't bring more excitement after a number of big name free agents were signed ahead of the meetings this year. Brian McCann, Jacoby Ellsbury, Robinson Cano, Carlos Beltran, Mike Napoli, and Hiroki Kuroda all inked new deals in the past couple weeks. Matt Garza, Ubaldo Jiminez, Nelson Cruz, Grant Balfour, Omar Infante, and Choo, among others, all remain out there for the taking, as well as explorations of the trade market. The Yankees are likely still looking for a second baseman, third baseman, and starting pitchers as the meetings roll on. The president of Masahiro Tanaka's Japanese team is expected to be in Orlando this week, possibly signaling that he will be posted before the week is out.

Feel free to use this thread to discuss any rumors that pop up throughout the day, Yankees or not. Of course, we'll have full coverage of any moves the Yankees make at any point during the offseason.
