During a weekly radio appearance today, Peter Gammons accused the Yankees of tampering with Red Sox starter Andrew Miller. Gammons said “a lot of teams” tried to get Miller to opt out of his minor league deal before the Red Sox had a chance to put him in their rotation.

Brian Cashman responded with a two-word text message: “Not true,” he said.

Here’s Gammons’ comment:

“I know this: There were a lot of teams that tampered and tried to get him to do the opt-out, including the New York Yankees. A lot of teams wanted him to opt out on Wednesday. Because of his trust for the Red Sox and how much they’ve invested in him — not in terms of money but in terms of effort to just get his delivery back and be patient with him, he stayed. In some ways, their fortunate. Because I think he could have gotten twice as much money if he had left.”
