Don’t forget, Sam and I will be chatting at noon. Follow this link to get in on the conversation.  

Oddly enough, we did another chat almost exactly two months ago, a week after I got back from the Winter Meetings. On the morning of that chat, I guessed that the following topics would be discussed. Two months later, a lot of them still apply.

• Curtis Granderson is in center field. Andy Pettitte is in the rotation. Hideki Matsui is in Los Angeles. — Nothing has changed here. These remain three of the biggest topics of the offseason.

• Are the Yankees really going to carry a Rule 5 pick on their roster? — The question looms larger now that Marcus Thames is on the roster. Jamie Hoffmann’s chances might have gotten slimmer.

• Does the designated hitter depth chart really have Juan Miranda at the top? — We’ve clearly answered this one. No, it does not.

• With John Lackey off the market, is there still an impact starter available for the Yankees? — His name was Javier Vazquez. Whether he counts as an “impact starter” might be a subject of some debate, but my answer is, yes. 

• Where is Johnny Damon going to open the season? — Did anyone think we would still not have an answer to this one?

• How much better are the Red Sox with Lackey and Mike Cameron? — The Red Sox have gotten better. How much better remains a legitimate question. 

• Did the Yankees miss out on Roy Halladay? — This was one day after news of the Halladay trade broke. It’s pretty much old news at this point.

• How many West Wing references can Sam and I make in the course of a single live chat? — As always, the sky is the limit.
