Unlike the first two days of the offseason, it was pretty quiet today. However, there were some rumblings around (and a lot of familiar faces in the postseason), so let’s sum things up.
— Alex Rodriguez‘s hearing is expected to go beyond Friday but it’s unsure how long the hearing will last. If A-Rod’s hearing goes well into the winter, it could damper the Yankees chances of signing some power bats this offseason.
— A couple of days after Joe Girardi downplayed that he would return to Chicago for a managerial job, the Chicago Cubs admitted that they were very interested in Girardi. The Cubs don’t have permission to speak to Girardi (Girardi’s not a free agent until Halloween), which gives the Yankees a slight advantage in trying to retain their manager.
