    Joel Sherman recounted a fairly, um, interesting exchange with Yankees’ general manager Brian Cashman in this morning’s Post.

    Cashman stews because he does not like the perception the Yankees’ usage strategy led to Joba Chamberlain’s Tommy John surgery. And hates more what he feels is a distortion of how Chamberlain was deployed. In fact, he used the term “people are so [bleeping] stupid” three times because he feels matters have been twisted to fit a narrative that he does not know what he is doing.

    “Joba was a starter his whole amateur career and his first pro season (2007) with us,” Cashman said. “We only brought him up to relieve to finish off the innings he was allowed to throw while trying to help [the major league team]. And we probably don’t make the playoffs in ’07 if we didn’t put him in the pen. But he wasn’t bounced back and forth. And the debate only began because instead of keeping him in the minors hidden as a starter, we tried to win in the majors.”

    Okay, first of all, as a matter of basic self-awareness I’d prefer that the guy who brought “the objective pipe” into our lexicon waited at least a full 12 months before declaring anyone “[bleeping] stupid,” but maybe that’s just me.

    Beat me to it. Nova's one of the few Yankee pitching prospects of recent vintage to be allowed to rack up fairly substantial MiLB innings a la how Tampa

    Nova averaged 144 innings his last three complete minor league seasons. That doesn't include any playoff innings either. IMO, the Yankees didn't baby
