ESPN | Wally Matthews: It would have been nice to have three closer-caliber players in the Yankees' bullpen, but the addition of Andrew Miller simply made David Robertson an expensive spare part.

Newsday | David Lennon: Although neither Dellin Betances nor Andrew Miller has any real closing experience, the Yankees don't seem worried about turning over the late innings to either of them. | Kevin Manahan: Despite rumors to the contrary, Derek Jeter doesn't have any plan to buy the Miami Marlins. Instead, the former Yankee has been coming up with book ideas for his new publishing firm.

New York Post | Kevin Kernan: Didi Gregorius gave his first interview since being traded to the Yankees from Curacao on Monday. He says he's only been in New York one day in his life and he knows that no one can do what Jeter did. The interview is a great way to get to know the Yankees' newest shortstop. | Brendan Kuty: Joe Girardi told reporters on Tuesday that Alex Rodriguez has been sending him videos of him working out near his home in Miami. They haven't seen Rodriguez try any first base yet, but it sounds like that will happen in spring training.

ESPN: In another bit of late night news from the Winter Meetings, Jon Lester has agreed to a six-year contract worth $155 million with the Chicago Cubs. The Red Sox fell $20 million short with their offer of $135 million.
