Yankees Afternoon Links: Cashman's New Contract and John Lackey

New, 43 comments

An unnamed Yankees official said Brian Cashman would have a new contract by Halloween. Good news.

  • Boston's John Lackey will undergo Tommy John Surgery and likely miss all of 2012. This is actually bad news for the Yanks; Boston loses a terrible pitcher and is probably more motivated to sign Yu Darvish.
  • The front office reportedly likes Darvish "considerably more" than free-agent to-be C.J. Wilson
  • They also would move Francisco Cervelli in the "right deal."
  • Update: Dave Eiland will join the Royals as their new pitching coach.
  • Feel free to use this as your open thread for the night.
