Via ESPN Florida –
New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has his new contract, but he hasn’t signed it yet, according to a baseball source with knowledge of the situation.
Cashman, whose three-year, $6 million contract expires on Monday, has been incommunicado all weekend. But the baseball source, who was involved in the negotiations for Cashman’s new deal, told ESPNNewYork.com that a final version of the contract approved by the Yankees has been in Cashman’s possession since Saturday.
“All the terms and conditions are done,” said the source, who declined to provide details of the contract. “My understanding is (Cashman) was going over it with his lawyer (Saturday night).”
According to published reports, the Yankees were agreeable to a new three-year deal for Cashman, who has been the Yankees GM since 1998. On Thursday, the Yankees sent out an email informing their beat writers that Cashman would be “out of pocket” through the weekend and unable to be contacted.
Wow. Must be some tricky language in this one, no?
