So here we are its the 2011 off season and the Winter Meetings have ended today. Lot of moves made, but not by the Yankees. Why? Well they just didn’t like any of the prices for the starters in the Free Agent market. Plus there was really only one that they probably should have been interested in. So what is Cashman going to do now?? Well lets find out:D
Cashman was seen walking down the hallway, getting ready to leave the hotel and board a plane back to New York. While he was getting in his car, he decided to call a very special someone.;) Who might that be you ask? Well it was none other then our good friend A.J. Burnett. Yes A.J. if you don’t like it, well deal with it:P. So anyway, Cashman called up A.J. to say a few words.
*phone rings with “I kissed a girl” ringtone by Katy Perry*
Cashman: “Hey A.J?”
A.J: “Yeah Cash? Hey what’s up?”
Cashman: “Well A.J. I got some news, I don’t know if its good or bad, that all depends on you.”
Cashman: “Yeah, A.J I am going to trade you away. I got a call from Billy Beane, and he agreed that if we paid all of your remaining salary and a couple of lower tier prospects. So pack your bags AJ you’re going to Oakland!”
A.J.: “WHAT????? WTF???? HOW THE F**K CAN YOU JUST TRADE ME???? AFTER ALL I HAVE DONE FOR YOU!!!!! YOU LED ME ON CASHMAN!!! YOU TOLD ME YOU BELIEVED IN MY AND NOW IM GOING???? WHO THE F**K DID YOU GET???!!!!!”
Cashman smiling: “Gio Gonzalez:D”
A.J: “You’re kidding right???”
Cashman:”YES A.J APRIL FOOLS!!!! AHAHAHHAHAHA SUCKER!!!”
A.J.:”Cash its December 8th its not even spring yet!! YOU’RE SUCH AN IDIOT!!! You think we can win with this rotation??? COME ON!!!! Go out there and spend all the $$$ you have.”
Cashman:”Oh…. :/” *hangs up*
A.J.:”Hello??? Hello??? CRAP…..” *hangs up*
Back in NY, Brett Gardner and David Robertson show up at Yankee Stadium to see how Cashman is doing.
Brett and David walk around the clubhouse but they can’t find Cashman. Finally after hours of searching, they find Cashman sitting in a corner…… crying?? 😮 Yeah there he was, sucking his thumb, crying like a baby.
“Cashman??” said Brett.
“I’m a good GM, I’m a good GM, I’m a good GM” whimpered Cashman. “Guys do you think I suck at my job???”
Brett and David looked at each other with quizzical stares. “Ummm no of course not Cashman!” said David. “You are one of the best GMs in Baseball”
“Yeah…. is someone giving you trouble???” said Brett. “Because if they are I will go all “BrettGardnerRAge” on them.”
“It’s ok guys, I can handle it….”said Cashman. “It’s just the media, beating me up because I haven’t gotten any pitching. Its not my fault no one wants A.J.”
“Don’t worry Cashman you will prove them wrong:D I think letting the kids take over when they are ready is an excellent idea.” said David.
“Thanks guys:D” said Cashman.
3 years later…
“And the YANKEES are back on top!!! Winning their 2nd consecutive World Series title!” said Joe Buck.
“With a rotation of CC, Matt Cain, Ivan Nova, Manny Bannuelos, and David Phelps, the Yankees have taken their second consecutive WS win.” “And you have to give credit to Brian Cashman for really believing in these kids and letting them come up through the system, despite much criticism, because they led the team to a WS victory!”
“Let’s not forget Jesus Montero contributing big time as the DH. You also had the rookie of the year catcher Gary Sanchez, Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain excellent job in the bullpen and of course the World Series S MVP the closer for the Yankees, David Robertson! Excellent job by everyone in this team, even Alex. They deserve it” said Joe McCarver.
And so the Yankees won the World Series:D And all those kiddies that other teams wanted via trade, they led the team to victory:D So, as you see Cashman truly does know what he is doing:D
