Yankees Trade RP Bruney to Nationals
The New York Yankees made the first move today at the start of the winter meeting in Indianapolis. They traded reliever Brian Bruney to the Washington Nationals for a player to be named at a later time.

This trade opened a lot of different options for the Yankees. Now that they have an extra spot in the bullpen, they might decide to keep either Joba or Hughes in the pen. They could also decide to keep both in the bullpen and go after Roy Halladay or John Lackey. Now with Andy Pettitte wanting to come back, the Yankees do not have to worry as much about their starting rotation for next season. I'm very curious to see what moves are next for the Yankees throughout the winter meetings.

Bruney made $1.25 million in 2009 and was eligible for arbitration this off season.

Roy Halladay vs. John Lackey Comparison ... coming soon!
