Aside from the obvious candidates of Curtis Granderson and Austin Jackson, the first person I thought of yesterday upon hearing the Yankees/Tigers/D-Backs swap was a Tigers blogger by the name of Mike Rogers. Mike writes Tigers by the Numbers and hails from Portage, Michigan. Mike and I "met" on the Sports Forum of a music website ...
Per Jon Heyman, it's all done and they're just waiting on physicals. The deal sends Phil Coke and Austin Jackson to the Tigers and Ian Kennedy to Arizona, while Curtis Granderson joins the Yankees. The Diamondbacks are sending no players to the Yankees.

Per Tracy Ringolsby of FOX Sports (h/t MLBTR), recently fired former Padres General Manager Kevin Towers could be close to accepting a job with the Yankees. Towers, 48, is a close friend of current Yankee GM Brian Cashman. He is a highly regarded evaluator of talent, especially on the mound, and would be an absolutely great ...
