It’s quiet so far at the General Manager Meetings. Most of the teams will arrive today. The GMs have a dinner tonight that includes the awarding of The Sporting News Executive of the Year award. There’s also a seminar on arbitration today that many of the assistant GMs will attend.
Because of the money they have to spend, the Yankees are the team everybody wants to talk about. There are teams that believe the Yankees will simply re-invest all their money and sign CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Mark Teixeira.
That would solve a lot of problems, obviously. But keep in mind that the Angels felt Teixeira was a key for them and will likely do all they can to retain him.
