A lot of people have an impression of Brian Cashman being this nerdy administrator. It’s actually quite the opposite. He’s a very funny guy. Here’s an example:

Cashman told a bunch of us today that he has made serious contract offers to both Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera.

“You’re in a negotiation basically,” Cashman said. “You make offers; they make offers and you try to find common ground. At some point, they make a decision where they want to play.”

“Have you made an aggressive offer?” Sweeny Murti of WFAN asked.

“Yes,” Cashman said. “I wouldn’t make an insulting offer. The Yankees wouldn’t do that.”

We all cracked up. “I beat you all to the punch,” Cashman said.
