I can't say for sure whether or not Cashman will bring balance to the force, but he's definitely got Jedi Mind powers over other GMs. First he got Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte for various office supplies (who but W.B. Mason?). Now he has managed to trade for the one of the best catchers of all time. That is quite a defensive tandem, I-Rod and Molina, and Cashman has only given up one real player in order to achieve all of this (Farnsworth). Now I hear a trade for Washburn is in the works where Seattle will take Kei Igawa and pay both his and Washburn's full salaries. It's amazing really, Cash definitely has learned to control the Force.
(You know I'm cool when I write entire blog posts about the Force. I'd have written more but my head gear got in the way)
