The number of Sunday afternoons left without baseball are dwindling and there's still a little bit of football to get us through until spring training begins. Both division championship games are this afternoon with the Seattle Seahawks taking on the San Francisco 49ers and the New England Patriots matching up with the Denver Broncos for the right to play in the Super Bowl.
On the baseball front, the Masahiro Tanaka sweepstakes are drawing to a close and we should have a definitive answer on his landing spot before this time next week. The Yankees are one of five teams that have made a formal offer for Tanaka to fill out their questionable pitching rotation. If they miss out on him, look for the team to head to either the garbage heap or the undesirable heap instead.
Feel free to discuss whatever you'd like. If you've been lurking but haven't come out to chat with us in the comments yet, I think today sounds like a great time to do so. We love new friends.
Some questions for your afternoon:
1. What is your earliest Yankee memory?
2. What do you want the Yankees to do if they miss out on Tanaka?
3. Predict Tanaka's final contact terms. Which team does he get it from?
4. Which player are you most excited to see in spring training?
5. What moves do you think the Yankees have in store that don't include Tanaka, if any?
