Two items of note from Olney’s blog today: The Yankees, he says, will wait until Tuesday to announce their next manager. If the World Series ends on Sunday, that would give them a week and a half to negotiate a contract extension with A-Rod. But odds are they’re working on one right now.
Olney also writes, “The Yankees made the decision weeks ago to exercise the one-year option on Bobby Abreu’s deal.” I can’t complain. I know we have one or two Abreu haters around here, but he had a stellar season after a terrible start. There are no better options right now.
