On the first day of the Winter Meetings, Brian Cashman faced the writers to talk about A-Rod's injury. Here's what he said.

Earlier today, the Yankees put out a press conference about the latest injury to Alex Rodriguez. Shortly after flying coach class into Nashville (no, not because of budget issues), Brian Cashman confronted a room full of reporters eager to ask him how thrilled he is to have Rodriguez for five more years (and maybe some stuff about steroids too, because hey, might as well). Here are some notes from his appearance, which lasted about half an hour:

The Yankees' third baseman marks another square in his game of injured body part bingo.

Aside from the Mike Napoli signing, the biggest news to break on the first morning of the Winter Meetings was something that by now is hardly news at all: another injury to Alex Rodriguez.

Before you believe everything your team's general manager says, remember these great moments in GM-speak, featuring half-truths, misdirections, and statements that turned out to be false.

Baseball fans will believe almost anything if they’re starved enough for news. No source is too far removed from the situation, no rumor too far-fetched to attract attention as long as it arrives on a slow news day and can be expressed in 140 characters. Ruben Amaro thinks Vernon Wells could be the Phillies’ answer in left field and wants to offer him an extension? You don't say. Brian Sabean is considering signing a hitter? Now you’re pushing it, but sure, it could happen. A team is talking about trading Zack Greinke for Jeff Francoeur? Okay, so no one would actually say that. (Wait—someone did.)

When a piece of information is couched in conditionals and comes to us through multiple intermediaries—a writer plus someone he knows who knows someone else—we don’t expect perfect accuracy. Anonymously sourced tidbits are generally something to discuss and dream about, not something you can count on. But surely we can trust the men whose job it is to put their clubs together. After all, who would know better what’s in a team’s plans than the man in charge of making them? Can’t we take what a GM says as gospel?

Prospectus Hit and Run: The Trials of Joba

20

Jay Jaffe

Despite handling their young fireballer with kid gloves, the Yankees find themselves without one of their top relief pitchers for the next year.

Some 24 hours after placing Joba Chamberlain on the disabled list with what was reportedly a flexor strain, the Yankees announced that a dye-contrast MRI revealed that their star set-up man had suffered a torn ligament in his elbow. Instead of being lost for a matter of weeks, Chamberlain is almost certainly headed for Tommy John surgery, ending his season and leaving the Yankees’ bullpen in total disarray.

The Yankees GM's weekend of pouring gasoline on the Jorge Posada controversy could signal deeper rifts in the House of Pinstripes.

Things got very surreal in the Bronx this weekend. While the Yankees were going about their business of losing a season-high fourth game in a row on Saturday night—not to mention their third series out of four amid a 3-8 skid—general manager Brian Cashman took to the airwaves during the third inning via an interview with Fox's Ken Rosenthal, then briefed the press corps at even greater length to further spin an emerging story. In doing so, he made an already bad situation worse, creating what was quite possibly the low moment of his 14-season tenure at the helm of the Yankees, while continuing a remarkable offensive against decorum that has to draw into question his long-term future with the team.

Squawking Baseball: The Best and Worst GMs of the Aughties

66

Shawn Hoffman

The best and worst single seasons and decade-long performances by the men in the front office.

For me, this is a lot of fun, but as a refresher, here's how these rankings are calculated. First, we find each team's expected revenue, based on their third-order winning percentage, and how big their market is. Then, you divide that by what each team's marginal revenue should have been, had they won exactly as many games as their payroll would have predicted. (Draft pick value is also factored in, so the worst teams get slightly more credit than the vanilla mediocre teams.) The end result is PER-Payroll Efficiency Rating-which tells us how well each team spent their payroll dollars.

SOMEHOW THIS PART OF THE YANKEE VICTORY PARADE HAS FADED FROM MY MEMORIES

"I knew I wasn't taking Tic Tacs. I knew it was something that could perhaps be wrong."
-Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, during his press conference in spring training to address steroid allegations.

On the Beat: Midweek Update

1

John Perrotto

The 2009 MVPs talk about the future, the Yankees mull their options, plus rumors and rumblings.

It has been suggested from about the second plate appearance of his increasingly Cooperstown-like career that Joe Mauer needs to change positions. However, the Twins' superstar has been reluctant to even think about moving out from behind the plate. The reasoning goes that Mauer's offensive effort would eventually suffer from the physical and mental toll taken from a catcher. Catcher is the position I've been playing ever since I was a kid," Mauer said. "I like catching. I like being involved in the game on every pitch. I really can't imagine myself playing another position. Maybe later in my career I could but not now. I don't thinking playing catcher has had any effect on my performance."

On the Beat: Weekend Update

John Perrotto

While the ALCS went into rain delay mode, there's still news and moves from around the majors.

Jimmy Rollins was reflecting on the previous October and looking ahead to this year's postseason one day early in spring training, when he said something that made it clear the Phillies would not be complacent this season. "What we did last year, winning a World Series, was a great accomplishment and something we can cherish for the rest of our lives," the shortstop said. "You know what, though? The truly great teams are the ones who won more than one World Series. The teams people remember and talk about forever are the ones who did it more than once. That's what I'd like to see us do, and I think everyone else on this team feels the same way."
