Today is the last day for most items on the ebay auction of Yankees memorabilia. This auction is run by the clubhouse manager of the Trenton Thunder, and all the proceeds go to benefit the Domestic Violence Project. They have some pretty cool stuff in there, and all of it makes for a great gift for a Yankees fan. Since we last mentioned the auction, they have added a number of new items, so give it a look.
In Yankees related new, the Yankees continue to close in on Ichiro, and it looks like it'll be the first multi-year offer they make this year. The report says that Ichiro had a 2 year, $14 million contract on the table from the Phillies, so the deal would have to at the very least match that.
Josh Hamilton has agreed to terms with the Angels on a 5 year $125 million contract. Reports now indicate that Nick Swisher is being heavily pursued by the Indians who recently traded outfield Shin-Soo Choo likely to make way for Swish. The Red Sox continued their off season frugal purchasing spree by signing Ryan Dempster to a two-year deal worth $26.5 million.
