I was going to tab the Yankees for the most as the winners of the winter meetings, but it’s tough to ignore what the Rangers have done.
They’ve brought in Rich Harden, Chris Ray and Mike Lowell. Props to them.
The Yankees also did good, but with the Johnny Damon deal yet to be complete, I favor the Rangers.
The Yankees pulled off the biggest trade of the winter meetings (blockbuster?) in acquiring Curtis Granderson, re-signed Andy Pettitte to a reasonable contract and got rid of Brian Bruney for a solid outfielder/bench player candidate in Jamie Hoffman.
