    “I’m not sitting at home, watching the TV thinking, “that should be us.” It shouldn’t be us. We didn’t deserve it,” [Brian] Cashman said by telephone on Wednesday, hours before the Phillies took Game One, 3-2. “This World Series is about two teams that fought to get there. In the Rays’ case, it was a long road for them.”

    “Getting to the World Series and winning it in the period of time we did (four times between 1996-2000) was remarkable, I just don’t think people appreciated it,” the general manager said. “Maybe now they’re beginning to understand how hard it is to be a champion. Maybe reality is setting in. Re-creating that (golden era) is obviously very difficult.”

    Seems the Yankees G.M. sees obstacles where others may just see challenges…

      This blog is pleasure to read when you can provide some substantive criticism of Cashman (preferably backed by some statistical analysis). It is not when you take snarky potshots. You’re an intelligent man and an avid fan; you can write better than this.

      Cash Man has more more to spend on payroll, drafting and player development than any other team. He can sign any bonus baby he wants and all I hear are excuses. 3 more years of this crap? The only thing that doesn’t make this a total farce is that JP and Omar still have jobs! Omar was resigned, too….for what? Omar hasn’t done anything with the Mets to warrant an extension either.
