"Now, what is this site about, how Joe Torre ruined pitchers' arms? Is that it?"

Monday recap

The first day of the Winter Meetings was pretty busy. I know I barely left my computer today, as evidenced by me posting 14 times.

Much of the news today was spent talking about CC Sabathia. We learned today that he met with the Yankees for the second time in as many days this afternoon. We also discovered that he told Dodgers GM Ned Colletti he would like to play for them. Apparently Sabathia has great character, but hates spring training in Florida. Reggie Jackson was also involved in the first meeting with Sabathia.

There was a rumor out there today saying the Yankees and Dodgers were talking a possible Robinson Cano trade. However, that was quickly refuted.

On the A.J. Burnett front, the Yankees reportedly are ready to offer the oft-injured pitcher four years at $16 million a pop. Oft-injured Carl Pavano also spoke glowingly about New York to Burnett, saying he has the stuff to succeed there. Speaking of oft-injured pitchers, the Yankees also met with Ben Sheets.

Regarding Yankees who are actually under contract, Jorge Posada is in Tampa, Fla., throwing and preparing to catch in spring training.

And this is only the first day. Be sure to check back tomorrow.
