    There are rumors coming out of the Bronx that Yankees G.M. Brian Cashman was quoted today as saying:

    “This is my Kei Igawa. There are many like it; but, this one is mine.”

    We’re still attempting to verify this report.

      WTF is he talking about? This one shot over my head.

      It’s a reference to “My Rifle: The Creed of a US Marine.”

      Although it begs the question of why Steve brought it up. Did Cashman get caught with a gun? Was Igawa brought up in trade talks again and Cashman refused to part with him?

      I agree, the reference is way out of LF.

      No one has even seen the movie Full Metal Jacket?

      Sure, we’ve all seen the movie… but I’ve got no clue how this relates to anything.

      My take was that it’s a joke…saying that Cashman and Igawa are like Private Pyle and his rifle. Of course, your mileage may vary.

      Steve, are you the sort of fella who enjoys a few nips of the sherry before you start blogging?
