After a week without power at his home in Connecticut, the New York Yankees’ Brian Cashman arrived at the general managers’ meetings ready to do business.
The weather was hot, but the trade market was not.
“Do I have something I’m looking to execute while I’m out here? No,” he said Tuesday night. “Whatever agents are here, I’ll meet with the agents and then obviously have a chance to engage the 29 clubs. I’ve been with them a few times already. I think there’s certain guys that I’ve been made aware of, but for the most part I think it will be unfolding quietly.”
This is the first Yankees off-season that I can remember where I have almost zero interest in whatever moves the team makes or doesn’t – and that’s surprising when you consider that New York has something like 13 free agents perhaps not returning and some potentially big needs in the starting rotation, bullpen, outfield and catcher.
Why don’t I care? It’s simple: I suspect, no matter what the Yankees do this off-season to address their roster needs, that it will not be something that impresses me, or, something that’s going to make any difference in the way this team is constructed in the last 7 years under Cashman’s full autonomy.
