Brian Cashman spent two hours talking to an audience in Pleasantville last night but wouldn’t comment on Joe Torre’s book. Josh Thomson has the story, and there are some interesting nuggets in there about Cashman’s history (his last job before interning with the Yankees was as a delivery guy for UPS).
Chien-Ming Wang threw off the mound for the first time this year yesterday in Tampa. All went well and the Wanger joined Jorge Posada among players taking part in early Florida workouts. Derek Jeter has also been seen, as per usual, getting some swings in.
Lastly, I wrote a column about Torre in today’s paper, arguing that the issue of whether he violated the “sanctity of the clubhouse” is essentially a moot point because the entire notion of privacy has changed so much in our time. Judging by the comments in recent days, I sense that may be an unpopular opinion around here but I’m open to discussion.
