Brian Cashman, perhaps still recovering from his night of sleeping in the street, was short and cryptic in an exchange of text messages this morning.
Here is a transcript of my "conversation'' with the Yankees GM:
Me: What r u working on?
Cashman: Do something on winter ball
Me: Hector Noesi is 3-1, 2.31 ERA in Dominican League.
Cashman: Blog it
Me: Any chance of making Jurrjens deal? For Nunez and who else?
Cashman: Stop wasting your breath
Me (changing course): How about Reyes to the Yankees, Jeter to the OF?
Cashman: U should work for the Enquirer
Me: Good idea. Would Buerhle be a good fit for 4 u guys?
