As expected, the Hilton Anatole is massive, and various baseball executives, agents and reporters are already making their way back and forth through the lobby. Things seem pretty quiet for now, especially for the Yankees, whose general manager isn’t even getting to town until tomorrow evening.
The good news is, Cashman has survived yet another Heights & Lights event in Stamford. Dan Barbarisi was there, and reports that Cashman made his way down the Landmark Building and ripped away his elf costume to reveal a Yankees jacket. He did something similar last year.
As you might expect, Cashman was asked about Manny Ramirez — who is apparently trying to be reinstated into Major League Baseball — and Cashman said the Yankees have no interest.
