Finally, a non-Hank quote

Brian Cashman, in reference to young centerfield prospects Brett Gardner and Austin Jackson:

“We need athleticism like that, especially when you have a bunch of these old farts filling the roster out. Those young burst-of-energy, athletic guys really stand out on a team like ours.”

That’s awesome.

    I had to read that at least three times. I couldn’t believe he really said that. Bravo Mr. Cashman!

  • David

    I can’t believe he actually said that.

  • BrunoAKAmaximumpotential

    WOW! I’m sure he was being sarcastic, but still, WOW!

  • LiveFromNewYork

    Great quote Cash.

    I think the chemistry of the team is going to be different this year with the Trinity having a higher profile and Girardi at the helm.

  • steve (different one)

    i am sure this was said with a wink, but it’s hilarious.

  • mike

    Thats great – and when does Mr. cashman get slapped for putting together a roster of old farts?? Or will he be in charge for 15 years before we actually get to criticize him?

    • dan

      He obviously said that while realizing that his roster filled with old farts for outfielders led the majors in runs scored. I can name 29 other GM’s that would gladly take this offense in exchange for their own.

    • E-ROC

      Is it really that serious? Lighten up.

  • JimT

    Mike just stole my thunder. A funny quote designed to light a fire under some of these “old farts”. But Mr. Cashman, who exactly put this team together?

  • Sean Serritella Yankees Daily

    I didn’t know Cashman was allowed to talk?


  • Mike R.

    Totally off topic, but a certain young catcher has an OPS of 5.000.

    • Mike A.

      Praise Jesus!

      • Eric Schultz

        He hit that thing to the opposite field. It was beautiful.

    I saw the game on a Philly channel. Both Duncans and Betemit stung the ball too!

  • DanElmaleh

    Maybe Hank is rubbing off on Brian. Good show.

  • Steve

    If anyone needed confirmation that the Yanks are going with a youth movement and looking for answers internally, this is yet another confirmation. To go along with all the Hank and Hal quotes we’ve had recently.

    This is not Torre’s team anymore, and George is no longer running the show. If you still think they’re going to trade the farm for some veteran quick fix, you’re just not paying attention.
