The Rule 5 draft is about to get started. The Yankees are at 40 on the 40-man, so they won’t be taking anybody.

Nothing new on the A.J. Burnett front. The Yankees are being very aggressive with the right-hander. While a deal could come down today, it’s interesting to note that Brian Cashman either is about to leave or has already left the Bellagio to go back to New York.

As for reports that the Yankees are still talking to Scott Boras about Mark Teixeira … well of course they are. It’s more Spy vs. Spy stuff with the Red Sox and Angels. Pretending to have an interest drives up the price.
