“We urgently need to stop the bleeding now,” [Yankees GM Brian] Cashman said Monday in a telephone interview. “We’ve been saying that. We’re working towards that.”
“We’ll continue to do the work necessary to put ourselves in position to succeed, and eventually that worm will turn. In the event things don’t turn, I’m going to have to make it turn and be forced to do things that weren’t part of the game plan, whatever that would be,” Cashman said. “The best answer would come from this mix of players.”
This mix of players has largely been terrible, as Cashman acknowledged.
“It was a horrific month of April,” he said. “In almost every category, we underperformed individually and collectively. Most of the players have not reached their expectations. That’s why our record is one of the worst in the game.”
The players are failing. Yet, Cashman takes no ownership on being the one who chose these players. The game plan has failed. Yet, Cashman doesn’t take ownership for being the craftsman of that game plan. All Cashman does is point fingers and make excuses. The Teflon GM strikes again.
