BRIAN CASHMAN RUMORS

Cashman's Folly

Brian Cashman is King of  major league baseball garbage.Look at today's line-up for evidence ( culled from that pile in the photo ):1.  We have Austin Romine at first base.  Brian Cashman has treated this position like the NFLGiants ( who are always 6-10 now ) treat linebacker.  Not since Carl Banks ( now a grandfather, I think ) have the Giants used a top pick for a key player...

Cashman: A-Rod caused spring training circus last year

Brian Cashman on A-Rod playing defense: ‘He just can’t do it’

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman railed against the notion of Alex Rodriguez ever putting on a fielder’s glove and playing some defense, saying the 40-year-old designated hitter simply isn’t capable of it anymore. “He just can’t do it [play the field], so I see no sense in belaboring it,” Cashman said of Rodriguez, via the New York Post. “He is not capable...

With Bird Down, Yankees' Cashman Must Work His Magic Again

You would think that it was already 2017. As soon as Greg Bird's season-cancelling injury was announced, Yankees Universe responded with a reaction that made me stop and ask myself, "Did I miss something? Did I miss a previous announcement, that Mark Teixeira was already out for the season? "Maybe I slept through the 2016 season. Yeah, maybe that's it. Teixeira is gone, it's...

Brian Cashman outlines the Yankees' longtime strategy: the Perpetual Wild Card

Yesterday, Brian Cashman explained what differentiates the dynastic New York Yankees from the rest of modern professional sports.Hubris.  Yes, the "H" word. (Which he didn't use. In the Yankiverse, "hubris" is nearly as banned as "Kei Igawa," a naughty word that results in children being sent to bed without supper.)Cashman said this, of the Mets:“They have an amazing collection...

Brian Cashman unsure what to expect out of Alex Rodriguez

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman admitted it’s difficult for him to gauge exactly what the team should expect out of Alex Rodriguez in the 2016 MLB season. With Rodriguez hitting the age of 40 last August and obviously the best years of his career well-behind him, Cashman acknowledged the Yankees need to take a wait-and-see approach when projecting just how productive...

Mr. Cashman, one question: What's the plan?

Last November, Brian Cashman needed to find a 3B. The Panda Bear was destined for Boston - thank God - and the A's were quietly planning to send Josh Donaldson - and the pennant - to Toronto for Brett Laurie and some breath mints. The Yankees were eyeing Chase Headley - to the fan base's dismay - and people were predicting a collapse.This is from ESPN, dated Nov. 12, 2014, under...
