Call off the Cashman watch for today


The Yankees will now not, I repeat NOT, have an announcement today regarding the contract of GM Brian Cashman. No explanation was given for the shift in plans but feel free to concoct your own conspiracy theory. Personally, I think it has to do with Cashman not wanting to have to deal with questions regarding CC Sabathia without knowing what his ace is going to do with the opt-out clause.

 My Plan B is that Cashman is waiting to see if Sabathia opts out before deciding to take on the job of rebuilding the Yankee pitching staff.

 My Plan C? He and CC are out trick-or-treating today dressed as Laurel and Hardy.
