A Done Deal
Updated 3:15 p.m.

First, I don't want this post to detract from Mike's fine post below. He analyzed the Yankees-Rangers trade in a very fair light, and while I may, as a Yankee fan, respond to some of his points tomorrow, you all should read this right now.

That being said, I would like to direct your attention here to a CNNSI report confirming that the deal is indeed finished.

Additionally, The New York Times is reporting a done deal simply awaiting approval from Bud Selig and the Players' Association. Alright, that's it from me until tomorrow. Again, read Mike's post. It's a top-notch analysis of this trade.

Update According to ESPN.com, the MLB Players' Association has approved the deal. Now the Yankees and Rangers have gotten over the hump that the Red Sox could not mount, all that awaits now is Bud Selig's approval. This deal, it seems, is a few hours away from completion.
