Notes and News: A-Rod, Girardi and more 4


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.

— Boone Logan is hitting free agency this offseason, so do the Yankees re-sign Logan or go after an old face, Clay Rapada? Rapada was released by the Cleveland Indians earlier today.

— More familiar faces that are in postseason play: Bartolo Colon will start Game 1 of the ALDS for the Oakland Athletics. Freddy Garcia was added to the Braves postseason roster.
