    Cashman’s response to the A-Rod question is the same argument SOME people on this blog refuse to accept.

  2. your mom says:

    Where’s the question about Justin Upton?

  3. Typical MIT Nerd says:

    What a homer.

  4. Hoss says:

    Tough week for A-Rod. First Reggie dumps on him regarding the past steroid use. Then Cashman describes him as “above average” not once, but twice. That’s the best he can do for a future HOF’er? Knowing that bad things often come in 3s, I hope Alex’s current girlfriend is loyal.

  5. Need Pitching (and maybe hitting too) says:

    I like how he listed Chris Stewart as a surprise.

    He must be impressed by Stewie’s ability to get hits off of IF’s gloves (as he should be).

  6. DM says:

    “We have our catching,” Cashman said. “I believe in Russell Martin, period.”

  7. Nick says:

    Good stuff, I’d love to see a Q and A like this with Cash but more focused on the minor leaguers too. Cash is one of those guys who will always be under appreciated since his club’s large payrolls, but when he’s gone he’ll be looked upon fondly by most sane observers. He’s steered this ship nicely since grabbing more power a few years ago. It’ll be interesting who replaces him, maybe Eppler, who’s become Cash’s right hand man. Nice read, can’t wait for the weekend and yankee baseball.

    What a great GM.
