If things keep going this badly for Brian Cashman, they still have more possibilities.
If Cashman has a blow up at a reporter, the headline could be
CASHMAN GOING APE!
If Johnny Damon signs with the Angels, the headline could be
CASHMAN SEES ANOTHER ANGEL IN THE OUTFIELD
If Jennifer Swindal, George Steinbrenner’s daughter, gets involved and trashes Cashman publicly, the headline could be
SHE’S OUT OF CONTROL
If the team just goes into a spiral, the headline could be
(Remember, Tony Danza played the racist TV director in Crash? Didn’t think so.)
And of course if he gets fired, the headline could be
CALL CASHMAN A TAXI!
And probably he will be replaced by Tony Danza.
Hey Jeff Francis… congrats on the new contract with the Royals…but…
You DO know that the Yankees current starting rotation goes as follows:
Terrific ace in CC Sabathia.
Guy who had a good first half and a shaky second half in Phil Hughes.
A super talented guy who is slowly turning into Crispin Glover in A. J. Burnett.
A nice arm who could very well be another overrated Yankee prospect in Ivan Nova.
And evidently the 16th caller on WFAN.
There is at least 1 or maybe as many as 4 holes in the Yankee rotation.
And as we now enter mid January (and soon after that February) it is looking more and more like Andy Pettitte will be sitting on his porch, whittling, this season.
Before signing onto a rebuilding project keep in mind four things going in your favor.
1) The Yankees are desperate for starting pitching.
2) You are a starting pitcher.
3) You throw with your left hand.
4) You have a pulse.
I am assuming the fourth one is true.
But that is a combination that should bring about the expression “CHA-CHING!”
Did you REALLY exhaust any conversations you had with the Yankees?
Yeah you are going to make $2 million his year and that is $2 million more than a lot of us will make this year.
But man alive you could have squeezed a few million more.
Oh, did Cashman say “No way”?
You fool. He would have reversed himself a week later. It is his M.O. these days!
