Around the Empire: Yankees news - 11/29/17

Beltran to interview for manager opening; Cashman is Baseball America’s Executive of the Year; Thomson to interview for Phillies bench coach position; Yankees playoff shares released; Scouting the top Ohtani destinations

MLB: New York Yankees at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

CBS: The Yankees still don’t have a manager. They’re the only team in baseball that doesn’t, so they’re taking their time with the search. The Yankees had interviewed five candidates so far, and are now officially accepting resumes again. The next name on the list will apparently be recently retired Carlos Beltran. The Yankees will get close to 10 candidates before announcing two or three finalists and then settling on the next manager. Tyler Norton’s already booked his ticket for the Beltrain.

Baseball America | George King: Brian Cashman has done a lot to turn this organization around over the last couple years. This is why he’s been named Baseball America’s MLB Executive of the Year. He orchestrated one of the fastest turnarounds in baseball history having the Yankees go from sellers in 2016 to contenders and buyers in 2017. Fire Cashman though.

New York Post | George A. King III: As the Yankees manager search continues, it may not bode well for the previous candidates to interview. All five of the candidates have a job for next year except for Rob Thomson. Possibly seeing the writing on the wall, Thomson is actually set to interview with the Phillies for their open bench coach position.

New York Daily News | Mike Mazzeo: Money, money, money, money! MONEY! Even though the Yankees didn’t win the World Series this year, they’ll still take home a considerable sum of money for making it to the ALCS. 57 Yankees will take home a full share of $138,897.63 out of the Yankee players' pool of $10,140,051.86. The Astros each received a full share of $438,901.57. | Jon Paul Morosi: You know what’s fun about Shohei Ohtani? Seeing how many people can write different things about his potential destinations. The Yankees, Dodgers, and Rangers are ranked among the favorites but the Mariners, Red Sox, and Cubs would be serious contenders for his services as well. Don’t sleep on the Giants or Twins either.
