A couple of things of note before the Winter Meetings officially kick off today in Las Vegas.

  • CC Sabathia and his agent Greg Genske were the ones who asked for a meeting with Brian Cashman, not the other way around, according to sources. It appears the agent is buying time, hoping the Yankees will “drop out” or someone else will pony up more cash.
  • The Yankees are starting to get a bit anxious. The more time that passes on CC, the less time they have to bid on other top free agent pitchers.
  • Tyler Kepner breaks down the mind of Scott Boras.
  • Doug Miller at MLB.com breaks down all of the things that may or may not happen this week.
  • PeteAbe will be blogging and videoblogging like crazy all week. Check out his site!
  • The guys at River Ave. Blues are there also and have blogged several times since yesterday as well.

Here’s hoping a productive week starts today!
