Good morning, folks! Day three is underway from Nashville, and we’re covering all the action on a minute-by-minute basis at BronxPinstripes.com.
8:10 AM: Last night, Brian Cashman met with the media and revealed that he has spoken to the agent for at least five separate players – Ichiro Suzuki, Raul Ibanez, Eric Chavez, Kevin Youkilis, and A.J. Pierzynski. There was no mention of Jeff Keppinger, who the Yankees reportedly have been aggressively pursuing.
Cashman’s quotes seem to corroborate that the Yankees were likely the mystery team that had a deal in place for Asdrubal Cabrera, only to have it fall apart when the Indians pushed too hard for a third prospect in addition to a major league pitcher.
