Here we go again. Another Monday. Another week that begins with the Yankees trying to chase Cliff Lee, re-sign Derek Jeter and get the ball rolling on Mariano Rivera.
Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
One week ago, Brian Cashman showed up in Orlando for the GM meetings and immediately squashed any idea that the Yankees might make significant progress. In the end, they actually did more than expected last week: Choosing a pitching coach and making two minor trades with Arizona and Atlanta.
What’s next on the list? And will anything get done this week?
There’s no real indication that anything is close. The Yankees and Jeter seem locked in a bizarre game of chicken, no one seems sure what exactly is going on with Rivera and Lee is the top free agent on the market. He’s going to make his decision whenever he wants to make it.
Another week begins.
