Now that New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has rappelled a 22-story building he has to get back to scaling the heights required to build another World Series contender in the Bronx.
"My priority list is pitching is everything," Cashman said. "I've been focusing on the pitching. I've been focusing on the legacy guys, but I really need to take care of our pitching."
First and foremost that means doing whatever he can to get free-agent Cliff Lee, the apple of the Yankees' eye for a long time now, to leave Texas for New York. SI's Jon Heyman sees no way the Yankees will allow Lee to slip away again.
Cashman will also spend the week trying to get a decision from Andy Pettitte as to whether the veteran lefty will retire or return to the Yankees on another one-year contract.
