Perhaps we can file this under "first official crazy winter meetings rumor of the day." Here is the interesting rumor in question, regarding our bullpen no less:
According to a team that talked to the Yankees about acquiring Brian Bruney, the right-handed reliever could be headed to Atlanta.
"We asked about him but hear he is going to the Braves," the source said.
Because the Yankees asked for prospects from the first team, they likely are looking for the same thing from Atlanta. Bruney, who made $1.25 million last year, is eligible for arbitration.
