Announcement to likely come tomorrow

Anyone hitting refresh waiting on official confirmation of Lance's trade (aka, "The End of Our Youth") can go ahead and go to the bathroom.

Ken Rosenthal reminds us that, as a player with 10 years of ML experience - and five years with one team - there is a 24-hour window. Since it's so close to the deadline, this could have been an issue. Rosenthal says he gave approval before the 3pm today - 24 hours before the deadline - but official announcements won't come until tomorrow.

My guess is that the deal is done, but they can't officially announce it yet, so the Yankees asked that Lance not play tonight to avoid any chance of injury.
