It had been a long while since our last call to good friend of the blog and psychoanalyst Brian Cashman, but it was time once again to fire up the old satellite video phone and call our favorite GM. The following is a transcript of our conversation:
RJG: Hello Bronny Bron-Bron. How's it been going?
BC: Oh, I'd say pretty well.
RJG: Good. So how are you feeling about the team now that opening day is just around the corner?
BC: I don't want to talk about that right now. There are other, more pressing, issues to be discussed?
RJG: Issues more pressing than the state of the team? For the GM?
RJG: Ok, shoot.
BC: Did you ever notice that Morpheus, from The Matrix, is clearly modeled on Rufus from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure?
BC: Keanu Reeves starred in both film franchises. Coincidence?
RJG: Seriously, Bronny, how's the team shaping up?
BC: That's not important right now, think about it. Rufus and Morpheus have the exact same jacket.
RJG: Did you dip your ninja costume in LSD and then eat it? What the hell are you talking about?! I just want to talk about the Ya. . .
BC: Yeah, yeah, the Yankees. We retooled great. Like our chances if we stay healthy. Marathon not sprint. Blah, blah, blah. Rufus and Morpheus. This is important stuff!
RJG: How is this important?
BC: I'm reorganizing my DVD collection according to common motifs.
RJG: It's not all about you, Bronny.
There you have it folks, the Yankees feel good about their chances if they stay healthy.
