Late this morning, Jean Afterman walked quickly through the Hilton hotel lobby. Several minutes later, Billy Eppler came through. Several minutes after that, it was Brian Cashman’s turn. Not one of them stopped to talk — not that I saw, anyway — and Cashman came through with a cell phone to his ear.
Unless big things are happening behind closed doors, that’s the extent of the Yankees action today.
Random Yankees sighting of the day: Greg Golson is at the trade show helping to promote the bat company that he uses. His company makes all of its bats by hand, one-by-one. Golson said there are three guys who make the bats, including one who was making bats in front of everyone. There were flakes of wood flying everywhere.
For what it’s worth, Golson said he hasn’t stopped hitting since the end of the season. Said he took maybe a week and a half “off,” but kept getting the itch to swing a bat.
Non-Yankees news centers on the Blue Jays trade for Sergio Santos and the ongoing Albert Pujols situation, but things still seem fairly slow.
