@amandarykoff: Cashman: to be honest what can wear you out here in NY is the media coverage.
@amandarykoff: Cashman: “The higher up the tree the monkey climbs, the more you see of his ass.”
Someone’s being brutally honest!
@amandarykoff: Cashman: Pettitte is still not in, he’s not retired, but he is working out. Discounts joining team mid-season.
The tea leaves are still cloudy. I’m looking for my Magic 8 Ball. Personally, my bet has been placed in the “he’s going to return” camp.
@amandarykoff: Cashman on A.J.: he knows he has a problem and he’s doing all he can to fix it. Yikes.
We can only hope. Another year of Bad AJ will be another really bad year. I’m cautiously optimistic that Rothschild will be able to help “fix AJ.” #FIXAJ
@amandarykoff: Francesa: Any chance of Joba in the rotation? Cashman: No. He hasn’t been same since injury in TX.
RAB’s Ben Kabak jumped on this immediately, noting that this was the first public admission that the injury was the reason for Chamberlain‘s banishment to the bullpen, with seemingly no chance of parole. This was a major tidbit that I’m not sure Cashman wanted to let slip, but given his recent bout with truthiness, perhaps it was.
@amandarykoff: Catching situation: Jorge DH. Open competition in camp for starting catcher at major league level.
“Slightly”? Egads. I thought Jones was at the very least, a sizable upgrade defensively from Thames, and for the cost, a great signing.
@amandarykoff: Francesa: Who’s better team today – Red Sox or Yankees? Cashman: Red Sox. But we have better bullpen.
A wonderful example of Cashman’s passive-aggressiveness. A backhanded compliment? Either way, I chuckled at this one.
@amandarykoff: Fan: what happens with Jeter? Cashman: I’d be surprised if he plays SS for all 4 years. I see him moving to OF.
Once upon a time, I thought Jeter could make the transition to OF. Though, I was thinking he could do it NOW, not four years from now.
@amandarykoff: Cashman on Mariano: He’s cool, calm and collected. The best Yankee I’ve ever seen. *crowd applauds*
Yes, yes he is. And yet another subtle slap at Jeter?
