Joe Girardi will be appearing at a charity event this evening and we’ll get a chance to ask him a few questions beforehand. I’m planning to ask him about his role in the free-agent recruiting process.
Money is what ultimately matters in the pursuit of free agents. For the right price, a free agent would happily play for any manager. But some players want to be recruited. They want a tour of the facilities, a nice dinner, a Broadway show for their wife and a nice chat with the manager.
I’m curious to hear how involved Girardi plans to be. Or whether he already has started. With the new Stadium and a changing roster, the Yankees have a lot to offer. And obviously a lot of money, too.
