When you’re in Orlando for three days, and you’re expected to write Yankees stories each of those three days, the last thing you want Brian Cashman to say is this:
“I don’t expect to get anything done.”
Unfortunately, that’s the first thing Cashman said yesterday as a small group walked with him through the halls of this massive hotel complex.
On this first day of the general managers’ meetings, there’s a much better chance of Yankees rumors and speculation coming out of this hotel than actual Yankees news. But, when it comes to the offseason, you pretty much take what you can get.
The GMs have meetings most of the morning, but the hope is that enough people will be roaming around to make a lobby stakeout worthwhile. Other GMs might have something to say or do. Agents might have something to say. Even Cashman might have some mid-day insights.
You never know.
