Morning Bits: Darvish, Cashman, Sabathia, Garcia

Good morning all. Here are two links, and a bunch of notes. Enjoy–

— According to Anthony McCarron of the NY Daily News, and this is nothing particularly new, Yu Darvish is certainly an option for the Yanks this offseason.

In Jon Heyman’s latest column, he mentions a variety of things pertaining to the Yankees:

— Yu Darvish is likely to cost a team about $100MM between posting price and salary. As you know, the Yankees like Darvish, but according to Heyman, they are very gun-shy because of past Japanese-pitcher flops, such as Kei Igawa and Daisuke Matsuzaka.

— The negotiations with Brian Cashman are supposedly going well, and should be done by the end of the month. Hopefully they are finished as soon as possible, so Cashman can get to work on his off-season plan and course of action.

— Talks with C.C. Sabathia are expected to start up next week, as he will most likely be opting out.

— The Yankees people liked how Freddy Garcia pitched for them this season. Garcia reportedly enjoyed his time pitching in New York this year. He could possibly be re-signed for next season, if the Yankees have the interest.

Have a great Saturday. A reminder that Game 3 is at 8:05pm ET, in Texas.
