ya cashman the genius who also gave igawa 46 million, pavano 40 million and farnsworth 16 million. Some GENIUS. Im sure passing on johan is going to turn into another genius move by cashmoney – i cant wait to see his butt walk out the front office door next off season. That is going to be the best scene since 2000.
So Cash was feeling pretty good at the start, what with Joba, Phil and IPK cruising, as did the rest of the guys…and Johan getting hit (yes, we all know that it means nothing against his track record; but it still must make Cash feel a little bit better after his going out on a limb against the deal). Then ole Iggy comes along and blows up again…
You gotta take the good with the bad. And figure out how to unload Iggy so he doesn’t clog up the system so the kids can’t advance on their own timetables.
We should all take the spring training performaces just for what they are – spring training, where the goal is to work on various aspects of one’s game rather than put up impressive numbers in the box score.
With the exception of Kei Igawa of course. Like Carl Pavano, he’s fair game for picking up where we left of last fall.
Trade him anywhere. Does Iceland have a professional baseball league? Is there Babe Ruthovichnya league in Siberia? Cripes … insist on paying his salary for his new team, as a common courtesy. Offer some extra money if they stall. Throw in one OF prospect and one pitching prospect with no limitations on who, except that the prospects can’t have had any major league experience yet. Ask for no players in return … just make it a one-way trade. Two players, one bozo, one pair of sunglasses and a bag of money in exchange for nothing. Not even a half-empty bag of stale rice crackers. Pay Igawa’s Japanese team another $10 million just to make sure they don’t go posting any more players.
If Spring Training meant something Cashman would be a genius.
Problem is, when the end of September rolls around, and Santana has 20 wins, his usual 1.0 WHIP and an ERA in the 2′s or low 3′s with a ton of K’s you’ll be planning a trip to Taiwan to write a book on a pitcher with an ERA in the high 4′s on the road and barely 100K’s.
Geez, already the “Bash Cash” crowd is weighing in!
C’mon! Just about every GM with money to spend on Free Agency has their “Pavano, Igawa, Farnsworth”. How about “Matt Clement, Wade Miller, and Eric Gagne”? Or trading Bronson Arroyo for Wily Mo Pena?
I agree that Igawa has been a “bust” so far, but I watched him shutdown the Red Sox for 6 innings at The Stadium last year in April, so he does have Major League stuff. So far its his lack of consistency/control, but at 28 yrs old he still has a few years to learn.
we cant blame cash for pavano because everyone was going after him. We cant blame cash for igawa because jean aftermath was pushing for him. And we should put some blame on his aides. But we should give cash credit for hughes, chamberlain and kennedy … Didnt scouts have something to do with those picks? Or was cash going to their high school and college games? Such a double standard. And pavano WAS injury prone before the deal was made and he only had one great season before we gave him 40 mil and a couple of very mediocre and very injury filled seasons. Take a look at the numbers before he was a yankee. Everyone was going after him cuz it was a weak free agent yr but the fact is he didnt deserve that kind of money based on his history.
And yes epstein has made mistakes but the sox won two world series in the last four yrs. The yanks have won NONE since cash has had control. No one blames epstein for trading arroyo cuz they got Dice K and beckett and won the world series. When the yanks win a world series next yr, I will stop railing on cash. I swear. But if they dont make the playoffs, his butt better be out the door. No fooling around. Without the scouts and draft people making fantastic decisions, cash would have zero credibility. Hes done less than nothing positive on the free agent market and his trades really havent panned out yet at all.
“And yes epstein has made mistakes but the sox won two world series in the last four yrs. The yanks have won NONE since cash has had control.”
Cashman was GM when the Yankees won the world series 1998, 1999, and 2000. He oversaw the teams that lost in the World Series in 2001 and 2003. The Yankees have been to the playoffs every year he has been GM and only lost the division title once.
What the f…? its the first day of Spring Training and you’re killing Santana?? and by the way Hughes & Joba were working out already about 1 month in Florida. and Just for your info I would have traded Joba for Sanatana straight up. (Yeah Joba can become a major Pitcher, but how major? you can’t get better than Santana). So please Brian Cashman is a genius? why because he didn’t make the Santana trade or because he signed, Kevin Brown, Randy Johnson, Jaret Wright, Pavano, Igawa, etc etc. oh and by the way Giambi is playing first, Who?
Brian Cashman has been in the organization since the early 90′s. he became a low-ranking Assistant in ’94 and while Gene Michael is truly responsible for putting together the first true Dynasty team, in ’96, Cashman was a part of that process and had total control by 1998.
yOUR THE ABSOLUTE MORON – Everyone in this blog and the world knows cashman did little if anything to put together the 99 or 2000 club. But whatever. Keep believing he is a genius. Ive had to hear about how cash couldnt be blamed for a thing until 2005 about a million times on this blog. And now u tell me he had control in 98. Please just shut up. and how is that spoiled that i think our gm is a moron? I dont get it.
not to mention, we have the highest payroll in baseball and we are an UNDERDOG to make the playoffs. And that is the highest by almost double. I dont think that is a compliment to brian in the least. Sorry to rain on ur guys parade by cash has not made good moves at all in the free agent and trade market in general. The negatives far outweigh the positives. Argue that he single handedly got us hughes and chamberlain but dont gimme this junk that he brought us a championship in 99 and 2000. And his lowlevel positions in the early 90s doesnt mean a thing.
Dave just so you know if Cash doesn’t come back next year its not because he was fired, but because he either decided to walk away or because Hank and Hal didn’t want to offer him a contract he may be looking for. When your contract expires you can’t be fired.
are you drunk?? Your comments aren’t very coherent…
I don’t know what you are talking about regarding 1999 and 2000. I do know that Cashman had total control beginning in ’98 however. and assisted Gene Michael in putting together the first Dynasty team in ’96
I guess ignorance can blind people from the FACTS. if you don’t like Cashman, offer me a better candidate.
A guy who can handle the payroll, the New York media, and the Steinbrenners. go ahead. GIVE ME A NAME. GIVE ME SOMEONE WHO CAN DO A BETTER JOB THEN BRIAN CASHMAN.
I have $100 down on you suggesting someone like Walt Jocketty.
and what do ur last two comments add hmm and Toilet Paper,
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Why dont u stop talking about me and start talking about the issues. The only reason I made that post hmm, is cuz Toilet Paper decided to start talking about me rather than cashman. And because its true, when cash does not get a new contract, i will laugh and laugh and laugh. I dont care if u dont like my comments – Im not hear to please you hmm. And hate to tell you – but you make the same comment over and over again as well.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players.
