Wang does his little turn on the catwalk

The deadline for the teams to tender contracts to players is Dec. 12, which means that Chien-Ming Wang’s tenure with the Yankees may well have only days remaining. The last person I spoke with about Wang indicated that the Yankees are still discussing their options – and remember, Brian Cashman does love to have pitching depth – but are leaning towards letting Wang go. Obviously there is still time before a final call has to be made.

(Yes, the deadline for offering arbitration is Dec. 1 and we’ll have a post on that later on today. This doesn’t apply to Wang — only to free agents like Johnny Damon, Xavier Nady and Andy Pettitte.)

Anyway, Wang is back in Taiwan and – thanks to our loyal reader Grace – we know that he recently attended a charity event benefiting schools that were damaged by a recent typhoon. The best part? The event was in a fashion show format!

Yes, Wang did the catwalk. And the red carpet.

Personally, I think he looks great. The scarf, in particular, is a nice touch.
