• Brian Cashman and self-fulfilling prophecies

    Brian Cashman recently sat down for an interview with the Postís Steve Serby, an interview thatís pretty amazing for the amount of banality they pack in to such a long feature. Cashman manages to discuss Phil Hughes, Alex Rodriguez, Raphael Soriano, Michael Pineda, Hal Steinbrenner, Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson, and the future of the Eurozone (okay, maybe not) all without saying much of anything interesting. Towards the end of the interview things turn towards the requisite questions about the Yankeesí make believe mandate to win the World Series every year, there are the per-requisite paeans to George Steinbrenner, and Iím secretly hoping Serby ambushes him with a question about his stalker or what he thinks Javier Vazquez is worth in todayís market.
