Time to get out of Milwaukee. I’m actually between flights right now, heading West to see my sister this weekend.
The GM Meetings went more or less as planned. Brian Cashman met with agents who asked for meetings, spent plenty of time around the game’s other general managers, and left talking about high prices and unreasonable trade requests.
“Part of the process,” Cashman called it.
This morning, the Yankees decision-makers made their way quickly through the lobby and out of the Pfister Hotel. Cashman didn’t speak. Hal Steinbrenner never broke stride. Randy Levine waved hello.
Throughout the week, Cashman did not paint a promising picture of the current trade and free agent markets, but that’s to be expected. He didn’t seem frustrated or surprised.
Cashman got out of town fairly early today because he was scheduled to attend the 15th Annual Dr. Theodore A. Atlas Dinner on Staten Island tonight before going into Manhattan for the Solidarity Sleep Out, a tremendous cause if there ever was one.
