    When Yankees general manager Brian Cashman walks through the Opryland Hotel’s doors this morning for the start of the Winter Meetings, he will encounter a baseball fraternity that expects his team to make an eye-popping move.

    “Come on, they are going to do something,’’ an NL talent evaluator said. “They don’t have a catcher or a right fielder. They might not be doing something here, but later they will do something. I think they are laying back, looking what shakes out.’’

    Cashman pointed to his deal record in the first week of December.

    “We’ve never been a big winter-meetings doer. We’re always trying to, but we’ve never really matched up too much in my history,’’ Cashman said last night after repelling down a building in Stamford, Conn., at a Heights and Lights event. “You don’t want to have the mentality that you have to do something. That’s how you make a mistake.’’

    Last week, Cashman said: “We are still capable of a lot. People should be leery of us and afraid of us. If we can strike and pounce on something that makes a lot of sense for us … just stay tuned.’’

    Me? The Yankees have so few chips in the minor leagues and majors that would interest other teams. So, I don’t see them making many trades – if any at all. And, we know the Yankees are not going to sign any free agents to mega deals. At best, I think that Cashman is hoping to get someone on the cheap when the market doesn’t work out as they had hoped (it would for them).
