It looks like it's going to be a soggy couple of days in New York, and yo, like Flava Flav once said, I ain't got nothing for ya, man. I don't know what to say about the Subway Serious other than I hope the Yanks win two-of-three and that the games are exciting. Otherwise, I'm numb to the canned hype at this point. I just can't get geeked about this match up, dude. I don't know, maybe it's just me. But the Mets just are not the Red Sox.
[Yankees general partner, Steve] Swindall revealed to The Post that he opened extension talks with Cashman during spring training, and that Cashman "acknowledged he wants to come back." Cashman verified the exchange and that his "preference is to return." Both men said negotiations have been tabled because Cashman wants to focus right now on remedying the team's deficiencies.
Meanwhile, over at the Times, Tyler Kepner has a nice puff piece on Joe Girardi, the Yankees' bench coach.
