In case you’re one of the few to miss it, you should check out Peter Abraham’s fan Q&A with Brian Cashman. I loved what Cash said about Brett Gardner.
For the record, I sent Pete a question as a suggestion. It was not used. Here’s the question from me:
Brian, last season you elected to feature two question-marks in the starting rotation, Pavano and Igawa, and it backfired. Luckily, you were able to go out on the market to pick up Roger Clemens as a band-aid last year – albeit an expensive one. This season, you’ve elected to feature two question-marks in the rotation again, Hughes and Kennedy, along with a quasi-question mark in Mussina. If some of these question-marks in the rotation fail this season, what’s your contingency plan for this year – without having a Clemens type out there to fall back on?
Shame, I really would have liked to have heard what Brian’s plan was for this season on this matter.
