With the Yankees about to begin a 10 game home stand, we thought it a good time to get on the old satellite video phone and call up Yankees GM, Brian Cashman. Below is a transcript of the conversation:
RJG: Well if it isn't Bronny Cash bothering us at home. What do you want?!
BC: You called me.
RJG: You think you're so smart, don't you Bronny? Well, why can't you put a decent team together? Why don't you put down your copy of Moneyball, and just build us a winner already?
BC: It's not that simple. I think we have a good team, we just haven't played to our ability yet. We've had a lot of injuries and there's little you can do about that.
RJG: You could try to get younger.
BC: Look, what am I supposed to do? Replace Jeter? Posada? If I did that I'd get crushed for insulting the greatest Yankees who ever lived according to fans who've probably been drinking since they woke up. We are trying to develop players but it's not as easy as calling up a bunch of 22 year olds. There are the realities of the differences between AAA and major league ball as well as politics.
RJG: Well, your bullpen sucks, and that's on you.
BC: Well, actually, I think it's on you.
RJG I never though about it that way.
BC: You're welcome.
There you have it folks. Cashman can't make the team younger because of politics, and the bullpen failure is apparently our fault. Interesting.
