Brian Cashman Confirms That He’s Not Ruben Amaro

Kyle Scott - June 20, 2011


Oh my, how the world has turned.

In two separate articles this weekend, Brian Cashman talked about the Yankees' need for an ace… and the fact that he is, indeed, not Ruben Amaro:

[MLB Trade Rumors]

Rosenthal asked Yankees GM Brian Cashman if he would consider trading for an ace, and Cashman replied, "I'm not Ruben Amaro," referring to the Phillies GM and his affinity for blockbuster trades.



Pitching is obviously the biggest difference, a matter not lost on Yankees general manager Brian Cashman a couple of hours before his team sent out Brian Gordon to face the Texas Rangers on Thursday afternoon in the Bronx. That's the same Brian Gordon who a week ago Saturday pitched his final game for the Phillies' triple-A Lehigh Valley franchise.

"They got Cliff Lee, I got Brian Gordon," Cashman said. "I don't think they have anything to worry about."


Heh. This is all funny because Cashman was Amaro before Amaro was Amaro. 

The new Evil Empire, or Phillies "Death Star," if you will. Sorry, I had to make a Star Wars reference there.

Brian Cashman Fires Back at Cliff Lee, Sort Of

Dude, Jeter’s like 36

The Yankees are soooo butt-hurt over the Cliff Lee thing.

Last week, Lee was on the WIP Morning Show and told Angelo Cataldi that one of the reasons he didn’t choose the Yankees was because they were “getting older.”

Never mind the fact the Phillies are the oldest team in baseball. 

It took Yankees GM Brian Cashman a few days to respond: [NY Post]

“Some of our core guys that we have relied on have gotten up there, but we have a group of young players that we’re excited about.

All we care about is being called champions. You can say anything else you want about us. When you call us old, that’s fine.

It doesn’t really matter. It was a marriage that was not meant to be. That’s life.”


Ah yes, invoking marriage when talking about baseball acquisitions- step 3 in the butt-hurt process. 

Neither the comments from Lee nor Cashman are damning, but, if anything, the fire has been stoked for the next time Lee pitches in Yankee Stadium… whenever that is.

Listen to Lee’s comments after the jump.

Still digging out from the snow, so in the meantime here's a very unbiased image to decide if Ruben Amaro is cooler than Brian Cashman, who was a guest bartender (for a good cause) last night in New York.
