Winter Meetings Open Thread 12/8/14: Ain't No Rest For The Wicked

New, 94 comments

Day One of the Winter Meetings in San Diego. The Yankees have acquired a shortstop and some bullpen help, but their work is hopefully far from over. Time to go shopping and see what they can get for us. Pitchers and catchers report in 73 days.

Look, it's probably best I don't tell you where I was trained in the art of ninjitsu.

It's Day One of the Winter Meetings, currently taking place in San Diego this year. If you like rumors, trades, player acquisitions, and keeping your eyes glued to social media to see what teams did what, then this is for you. The diligent staff here at Pinstripe Alley will keep you informed on any breaking news regarding the Yankees.

Comments of the Day

I think Harlan speaks for a lot of Bills fans out there. Circle the Wagons, Harlan.

Yeah, I think Mr. Mahbles has definitely described one of the worst ways to travel.

Pictures of Roxy are why we have rules and regulations around here. See the HMM award section.

Blanky's pungineering is getting better with each passing day on PSA. Think what you will about that!

It will be interesting to see what our fellow AL East teams do during the Winter Meetings. Keep your eyes on the Orioles.

YardCockRock makes the case for Jon Lester in pinstripes.

Finally, Harlan reminds us that Randy Johnson was a pretty good pitcher, even into the later years of his magnificent career.

GIF of the Day

I do not follow basketball much, but apparently the New York Knickerbokers are not good at winning games.

Honorable Mod Mention

Roxy wins the HMM award, because she's hardcore and apparently she also blogs.
