New York Post | Joel Sherman: The two trades that the Yankees have completed this week demonstrate that the team isn't really trying to win in 2016.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Diego Moreno signed a new minor league deal with the club on Thursday, giving the Yankees another potential long relief option at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. | Ryan Hatch: Andrew Miller has no control over whether the Yankees trade him or not this offseason, but the closer wants to remain in pinstripes. Closers have netted big returns this offseason, but there's no question that Miller makes the team better in 2016.

New York Times | Tyler Kepner:The Yankees, like the Mets, made some cautious upgrades to their roster at the Winter Meetings this week. Either team could have dove into the free agent market, taking a bigger risk, but neither one seems like they want to invest that kind of money right now.
