It was recently reported that the Marlins picked up closer Heath Bell and shortstop Jose Reyes, making one of the biggest splashes of this hot stove season. The Yankees on the other hand have remained disengaged. The GM meetings are going on right now, but Cashman doesn't seem all too interested.
"I went to speak to Cashman." Explained one rival GM. "I came into his hotel room, and he had what appeared to be a draft board of baseball cards of historical players. He pretended to be on the phone like he was drafting players, and he got really excited when he picked up Cy Young and Honus Wagner in two consecutive draft picks. I tried to interrupt him to discuss a trade idea, but he was like 'I just got Cy Young, who do you got!?'" So the negotiation didn't go anywhere."
While the Marlins are spending like the Yankees, and the Yankees are playing it quiet, Yankee blogs across the country continue to suffer.
