Brian Cashman is still waiting, just like the rest of us

Brian Cashman

Ready for the latest on Cliff Lee? Well, there’s not much to report.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told Tyler Kepner of the New York Times that much like the rest of us, he’s still playing the waiting game:

“They have not made any decision, same as yesterday… He’s got a life decision to make, and he’ll make one here someday.”

Sigh. Anything could happen still, but it sure sounds like there won’t be anything breaking tonight.

Ah well, at least that means another day of blogging about Brian Bruney for Craig and Aaron.

    The YANKEES should tell LEE they are moving on with out him and look at trades for a starter.

    So they should tell their number one free agent target to take a hike because he kept them waiting a few days? Yeah, solid logic there!

    How long do you think it would take you to make this decision, if it were yours? If I were the Yankees, I would pull my offer and look elsewhere for a pitcher. Who wants a player on your team who can’t make up his mind if he wants to play for you even with that unbelievable sum of money being offered and the chance to play for the most storied franchise in all of baseball history. I hope he chooses the Rangers or the “mystery” team. They can have him.

    Wow. Sense of entitlement much, fellas?

      Yankee fans. What do you expect?

      I think it’s a cents of entitlement.

    Because everyone knows the contract is probably only one page long and in plain English, not legalese.

    Heaven only knows how thick baseball contracts are and how many attorneys look it over before it makes it to Lee’s hand for a signature. I’m not saying that this is the reason he hasn’t signed yet, but if I were him I’d want multiple eyes to look over the contract before I signed for 7 years.

    I THINK DON;T THINK AN AGENT NEEDS 4OR 5 DAYS TO LOOK OVER A CONTRACT IT;S WHAT THEY DO FOR A LIVING.[THE]

    My Centses tell me Lee is in love with “team mystery”.

    • thinman61 - Dec 13, 2010 at 9:17 PM

      Gasp! But Team Mystery isn’t offering the most cents!

        Alright, guys, how about a little centsitivity here?
