Winter Meetings: Day 3
Brian Cashman saw some daylight today when his car service dropped him back at the Bellagio from the airport. Many of us never had the same luxury, gasping for air under the crush of news.
Yes, Yankees fans, CC Sabathia is finally on your side, accepting terms of the seven-year, $161 million pact Cashman threw out near San Francisco late last night.
Up in the Yankees’ suite today, Cashman was in another good mood, though weary from his travel. He hid an electronic whoopee cushion machine under a coffee table and had to give it a few playful triggers before saying what he could about the Sabathia deal – which wasn’t much.
Until it’s official, Cashman explained he needs to protect himself from having it go awry, which is why the lawyers need to look through that with a fine-tooth comb. The Yankees aren’t done – looks like A.J. Burnett is next. As Cashman said, “Stay tuned.”
