Ronald Blum of the Associated Press reports that, according to sources, Brian Cashman and Scott Boras met on Thursday. Edit: Boras doesn't represent Sabathia, my mind was elsewhere. Greg Genske represents Sabathia. But, Boras represents Derek Lowe, Oliver Perez, Mark Teixeira and Manny Ramirez, among others.

Blum notes that Cashman is planning to meet with Sabathia, as well, before the winter meetings, which begin on December 8.
