INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) - After a week without power at his home in Connecticut, the New York Yankees' Brian Cashman arrived at the general managers' meetings ready to do business.
The weather was hot, but the trade market was not.
The annual GM meetings, back in the Coachella Valley for the first time in seven years, start just a week after the World Series and often spark discussions that lead to trades and signings later in the offseason. The largest winter meetings, where teams send larger delegations from their organizations, are scheduled for Dec. 3-6 at Nashville, Tenn.
While teams feel each other out to try to determine what trades are possible, Cashman repeated he doesn't anticipate inquiries about Alex Rodriguez, who was benched during the playoffs. A-Rod has $114 million and five years left on his contract
