RJG Reviews the Winter Meetings

With the Winter Meetings now over, it is time to reflect on the Yankees' comings and goings in Nashville, TN. Obviously, not much happened this week. Or is it so obvious? Was it really a wasted week?

No. On Tuesday, when Cashman arrived a day late because he was rappelling down a building in Connecticut, he had a steak. For lunch. We openly questioned his selection of a Caesar side salad, but felt he redeemed himself with his choice of amaretto digestif. Classy.

On Wednesday, Cashman was spotted at the hotel's gym. Treadmill? Really? We were hoping for some tickets to the gun show, but Cashman never even approached a dumbbell.

Thursday was more of the same. Power lunches, questionable sides, and uninteresting but sound workouts. I think it is fair to say that Cashman's performance at these Winter Meetings was lackluster, but consistent. Consistently nothing. I hate your face so much right now!

Sources report that when Cashman ordered the Caesar, he hesitated when the waiter asked if he wanted it with grilled shrimp. A tinge of desperation, nearly imperceptible but still there, registered in his eyes. "No thank you," he said, his voice dry, perhaps defeated.

The Yankees will win the World Series this year!

That's the kind of coverage you won't find at a major sports news network.
