What was Brian (Fredo) Cashman's worst Yankee move this year? It's not what you think

"I'm smart and I want respect!" -- Brian (Fredo) Cashman Grrrrr. I am irate at the state of the Yankees these days. A little bit more than a quarter of the 2015 Yankees' season is over, and the team is not in a good way. Yes, the Yanks are only 1.5 games out of first place in the American League East, But they have lost five in a row, and nine of their last 10 games, They are only...

"I'm saying, I'm an insect who dreamed he was a man and loved it. But now the dream is over... and the insect is awake. I'm saying, I'll hurt you if you stay." Jeff Goldblum (as scientist Seth Brundle) in "The Fly" (1986)... summing up the 2015 Yankees.Yesterday, the Yankees fell into 2nd place in the AL East, arguably the worst division in baseball.

When is the Stephen Drew Experience going to be over for the Yankees?

There are many things in this world I just don't understand. Calculus. How to drive a stick shift. How to solve a Jumble. Why Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi have such faith in Stephen Drew.Why does Drew still have a job? His current numbers are .177/.264/.345. Those are the lowest numbers of any second baseman in the American League. They are also lower than any other second baseman...

Vindication For Cashman As Yankees' Pineda Ks 16 Orioles

You have to believe Yankees GM Brian Cashman was one of the most satisfied people in the ballpark at the conclusion of Michael Pineda’s dominant Sunday afternoon start, second only to Pineda himself. When Cashman traded for Pineda prior to the 2012 season, parting with Jesus Montero, he did so because he was dreaming of starts like the one Pineda delivered on Sunday. The line...

Wisdom and Links: Pay Him The Cash, Man

Attention Brian Cashman: give A-Rod the cash, man. Yes, I know you are angry about how his steroid stuff ruined the hype and marketing opportunities that the Yankees had originally put those “milestone payments” in his contract for. Yes, I know that you have severe buyer’s remorse over A-Rod’s contract in general, even if he’s having a good year so far. And, yes, I know...

Same old, same old: Brian Cashman looks silly after getting ripped off (again) by Dave Dombrowski

The New York Post's Joel Sherman wrote an excellent column yesterday about how it looks like Yankees GM Brian (Fredo) Cashman was again "fleeced" by Detroit GM Dave Dombrowski. I have been banging this drum for years, and now Sherman is making his own noise in his Post column. He went through all the times that Dombrowski has gotten the better of Cashman, going back to when the Tigers...

Latest news from the meltdown front: No lead is safe

Last winter, Brian Cashman played an interesting strategy... sort of like in the board game Risk, when you stash all your armies in Australia. He hoarded bullpen "power" arms. He traded Frankie Cervelli for one. (Frankie's hitting .304 in Pittsburgh.) He traded Manny Banuelos for two of them. (Manny with a 2.08 ERA at Triple A.) He traded Shawn Kelly, a power arm, for another one...

Chili Davis' Choice Of Red Sox Over Evil Empire

(Eagle-Tribune Photo)Chili Davis won two World Series rings with the Yankees in the late 1990s. So, when Brian Cashman made a push to sign him as the hitting coach of The Bronx Embalmers, he was obviously interested. However, in 2011, the Boston Red Sox offered Davis his first coaching position ever—hitting coach at AAA Pawtucket. So, when Ben Cherington came 'a-calling', Davis...
