The 2018 MLB Winter Meetings continue to underwhelm, but are the dominoes starting to fall? Here are the latest rumors to come out of Las Vegas.

While the 2018 MLB Winter Meetings haven’t brought us the record breaking deal or the blockbuster trade. Instead, it has been somewhat of a circus. So far, we’ve seen false reports, minor free agent signings (yes, there were some free agent signings), injuries, a heck of a lot of rumors, and a Death Star.

To start, let’s pick up with a story that was left up in the air all day yesterday. After several false reports floated around stating that J.A. Happ had agreed to a 3-year deal with the New York Yankees, Brian Cashman finally landed his man.


While the move solidifies the Yankees rotation, it does not exactly improve it by much. With guys like Sonny Gray and CC Sabathia still very much an integral part of the rotation, adding Happ still leaves a lot to be desired.

Look at things on the bright side, Yankees fans.  If an arm doesn’t become available, you just landed yourself the best available SP.
