If Brian Cashman hasn’t changed his phone number already, now would be a good time to do so:
A woman accused of stalking New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is poised to get out of jail after five months behind bars. Prosecutors and a Manhattan judge signed off Thursday on Louise Neathway’s $300,000 bond package …
Based on everything that’s been reported about this woman it sounds like she’s got serious problems.
Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Red Sox are “openly listening” to offers for Rick Porcello. He says that the idea is to shed some salary for bullpen help, though just yesterday Dave Dombrowski said he was not planning on spending a lot of money on the bullpen this winter so who friggin’ knows?
Porcello posted a 4.28 ERA in 33 starts this past season. He is owed $21 million in 2019 and will be a free agent this time next year. Seems hard to imagine a deal that makes sense for him, but I suppose anything can happen.
