So far Joe Torre is 1-3 in his recruiting phone calls this winter (Farnsworth, check; Giles, Eyre, nope). Torre told reporters yesterday that he had a general conversation with free agent Nomar Garciaparra. Newsday is reporting that Torre also spoke with Johnny Damon. I don't expect either of 'em to end up in New York, do you?
Meanwhile, the Bombers aren't thrilled about Chien-Ming Wang pitching the WBC this spring, but they may not have a cherce in the matter.
