“It is what it is,” Cashman said of his suspect rotation that might be upgraded by paying big bucks to Barry Zito, Ted Lilly, Jason Schmidt or Gil Meche. “Nothing I do this winter is going to change the money I have invested in Randy Johnson and Pavano.”

“Hopefully on the back end of the contract we will get what we paid for. Because of the money invested, we have to count on him.”
