So, I’m not sure what’s been going on with Brian Cashman lately, he seems alittle off. Ever since the Rafael Soriano signing and he publicly coming out and stating that he disagreed with his bosses, he's been weird. And to tell you the truth, he's had diarrhea of the mouth a lot, maybe even before that with the Jeter signing. These bold statements and blabber from him aren’t exactly Cashman-esk. Are you following me? Not sure what’s up, but here’s the latest.
"I'd be surprised if he plays shortstop for all four years (of his deal). I see him moving to the outfield." Cashman said this during a fan breakfast sponsored by WFAN today.
He later clarified saying: “This is not an issue and not something we’re considering. It’s certainly not something that should be blown-up viral discussion. Responding to speculation about him moving to 3B and Alex going to DH, in my mind his athletic abilities translate better to OF. But that’s not something we’re considering and not something we have talked to Derek about. He’s our shortstop, end of story.”
Is this conversation over? NO. It's all over the Internet. My opinion? Don't mess with the Captain...period.
Now let’s address the outfield part of this. Cash, Are you really going to sit there and tell me that you want an aging player in the outfield?
- You didn’t resign Johnny Damon because of money and AGE issues.
- Back in the day, the Yanks took Matsui out of the outfield after he broke his wrist and ya'll we're concerned about his outfield abilities because of his AGE.
Are you OK? Do you need a few days off? Sorry, not going to happen, you're the Yankees GM. Get back to work! Now, if you signed a starter for us like we've been asking for, we'd be OK with a few days of rest, but not now Cash, no way. Just be a GM, stop impersonating Hank Steinbrenner with stupid comments. It's getting creepy.
