Peter Abraham has interesting quotes from Yankees GM Brian Cashman:
- The Yankees are trying to improve their process for scouting Japan. Thinking back to Kei Igawa in ’06…that seemed like a direct response to the Red Sox getting Daisuke Matsuzaka.
- Cashman thinks Mike Mussina is leaning toward retirement. That would complicate Cashman’s situation.
- It seems that Hal Steinbrenner has gotten Hank under control, which would make Cashman’s job easier. There will be no advisory board, by the way.
- Joel Sherman says Cashman is now fighting for his reputation.
- Cashman cautioned fans against getting too attached to any one free agent. He may have been implying C.C. Sabathia.
