"It gave Cliff an opportunity to personalize the organization. The only experience he had with the Yankees prior to that was going to Yankee Stadium and playing in Yankee Stadium and his experiences in New York. It's a good opportunity. Certain levels of free agents have the opportunity to go face to face with general managers, managers and pitching coaches and ownership. It's something we anticipated and expected, and something that Cliff enjoyed. He'd never had a chance to visit with Brian Cashman before. You can't help but like him. It was very favorable."First impressions are important, so obviously I'm glad the meeting went well. I'd expect the Yankees to make a formal offer in the next day or two.
