Yankees Execs Meet in Manhattan
Wednesday, November 02, 2005
The first of the winter planning meetings got underway yesterday in New York City. Bigwigs from NYC and Tampa gathered together to plan for changes that would be made during the off-season. Although Cashman and Steinbrenner both issued the obligatory “no comment” on the goings-on in the secret meeting, it is likely that issues discussed included coaching options, how to fill up the bullpen, and the impending Matsui deadline.

The Yankees front office certainly has their work cut out for them. They have already begun to fill in the holes in the coaching department; Bowa is signed up for third base duty and Lee Mazilli (ex- manager of the Orioles) is rumored to be penciled in as Torre’s bench coach. As for the pitching deficits, former Yankee pitching machine Rob Guidry is a possibility for pitching coach, but there’s no word or even a rumor of who his pitching students may be.

The biggest and most pressing concern that the execs are likely hashing out during these meetings is the Matsui contract. As I’ve mentioned before, this season was the last in his three-season contract, making him eligible for free agency. The Yanks now have till the fifteenth of the month to re-sign him, or they will be forced to release him and won’t be able to discuss any contract options with him until next May. Yikes! It is rumored that Matsui’s agent is looking for a four year contract, to be worth between 42 and 46 million dollars. Matsui’s agent, Arn Tellem, will be meeting with Cashman next week to discuss contract options, so stay tuned for info on that...I’m sure the rumor mill will be churning at high speed!
