It sounds like Thursday will be press conference day at (old) Yankee Stadium. Not sure yet if it’ll be just CC Sabathia or A.J. Burnett as well. The Yankees will have armed guards present to make sure nobody flings a shoe at Brian Cashman.
Meanwhile there’s a report out there that Andy Pettitte has a three-year, $36.5 million offer. If so, than good for him. But Pettitte said two things all season: He wanted a one-year deal and he wanted to stay with the Yankees.
The Yankees have offered him just that opportunity. After everything that happened, he should take it. Based on what I’ve heard from fans, his status will be damaged otherwise.
The Yankees and Brewers were planning to talk today to try and complete that trade for Mike Cameron. There were reports that Kei Igawa was involved but that may no longer be the case.
