Brian Cashman quotes

Sep 30 2017

It created such a stupid firestorm of ignorance that blew back, which was, What are they doing?' . We were doing the same thing everybody does. We were just very honest and open about it, and it created T-shirts and stupidity, so now I'm like, you know what? I'm not going to put ourselves back in that position. I'm just not going to invite that type of scrutiny and allow people to dissect whether that innings limit is the right one or not.feedback

Sep 22 2017

We benefited from Billy's baseball I.Q. for a long time, like the Angels are now. I'm not surprised by any success they have, because they hired the right man, and they will benefit for a long time from that decision.feedback

Sep 18 2017

Didi was a very good defender, but he had not been able to establish himself as a hitter against left-handed pitching. He was still developing with the bat, and he wasn't a finished product. It was matter of a lot of pro scouts applying his ceiling.feedback

Sep 18 2017

At the time, I felt like we were pitching-deficient, and we were depleting one area of need to shore up another area of need. It was a difficult decision. I was so desperate for a shortstop, I had to step up and put an important piece on the table to get it done.feedback

Sep 18 2017

Everything we've been trying to do, for quite some time, has been about getting younger.feedback

Aug 30 2017

The one thing the Yankees have always stood for, and do stand for, is the effort to try to become a superteam.feedback

Aug 03 2017

Boston is the Golden State Warriors of baseball now.feedback

Aug 02 2017

We checked out all his medicals, and he's fine. He's at no more risk than any of our other guys who throw the baseball for a living. I just think Billy's gearing up to fight another day.feedback

Jul 25 2017

I'm only leaving about 22, to be honest with you. They get a little more expensive over here.feedback

Jul 19 2017

He was the centerpiece of this concept from the White Sox end. It was tough to deal Blake,'. He's a producer, with a high ceiling and great makeup. But we traded from an area of strength, which is outfield depth.feedback

Jul 09 2017

So far, I can tell you sticker prices are pretty high. I'd like to think our fan base would be happy that we're saying no to a lot of things that are currently being presented to us.feedback

Jul 03 2017

There's something going on that we haven't been able to get our hands on. All diagnostic testings are negative thus far, and all the diagnostic testing has showed the bone bruise has healed, and yet he has pain.feedback

Jun 22 2017

I think he'd like to come up with a better option if we had one, but we don't.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - British Petroleum

First and foremost, we have to see how he responds in the next three to six days.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - British Petroleum

I know what Greg Bird is capable of when he's healthy and it's all in line. I think when you're as gifted as a hitter as I believe he is, I don't think it takes too much for him to be rolling out of bed and hitting.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - British Petroleum

Do I think Tyler Austin will be back in the big leagues at some point this year? I think the answer to that is yes. Do I think right now we're better served by staying with Chris Carter? The answer to that is yes.feedback

Jun 21 2017

The pitching is obviously an area of concern, both in the No. 1 slot and a back-of-the-rotation slot now that C. C. has vacated. Whether it's Cessa or German taking the ball in the fifth spot – and Tanaka in the first spot – you're not sure what you're getting.feedback

Jun 21 2017

And the bullpen, we've gotta get Clip back going. I saw him yesterday and I just said, You've been really good for us and you've been good in this game for a long time, and we'll get you good again, just keep fighting through it.' But we've hit a tough stretch in the pen, and we've hit a tough stretch with the rotation side of it.feedback

Jun 19 2017

I think we'll stay the course. We've mapped out a strategy. We're keeping it very simple, as we always try to. We don't want to overcomplicate things. We're trying to address our needs. We just want to keep doing it our way.feedback

Jun 19 2017

None of these decisions is easy, whether it was acquiring Didi Gregorius, or Aaron Hicks, or whoever. We try to improve the present without hurting the future.feedback

Jun 19 2017

It's definitely an open race that could lead to paralysis – everybody trying to do something to improve.feedback

Jun 19 2017

We're more apt to stay with what we have within.feedback

Jun 13 2017

When a need arises, we will drill down on all legitimate choices.feedback

Jun 09 2017

There's no complaint from the player, and there's no indication from an analytic standpoint that would indicate injury. He doesn't have a velocity drop or any indicating factors outside of poor performance that would lead us to believe there is an injury going on.feedback

Jun 09 2017

I think Hicksie's shown the league enough that he can be an All-Star.feedback

Jun 07 2017

I think everybody that's taken the field out there with expectations knows that performance is an important part of it. If not, we're forced to make decisions.feedback

Jun 07 2017

We've done the C.S.I.: the Bronx on him and turned him in the lab upside down and inside out. And obviously, Larry Rothschild and his efforts, so we can't necessarily point to the reason why, outside the recognition that the split finger is diminished, and at times, the slider has been inconsistent, and at times, the fastball command isn't there. But we can't determine why.feedback

May 15 2017

Until he's pain-free, there is no next step.feedback

May 15 2017

It's a tough break but that's the price of playing poker. We've had other guys get hurt this year and someone has always stepped up. It's been pretty much plug-and-play so far.feedback

May 14 2017

He's going to be shut down for two weeks and then we'll reassess. You're probably looking at a minimum of a month if everything goes right.feedback

May 07 2017

I would have bid the price up. ... I told him, Let me know and I'll help you get there.' My interest was in keeping him. But if the end game is [Chicago], let me in, so I can privately prepare to replace you if I'm forced to do something like that. And you can get the most money you can get.feedback

May 04 2017

If you focused on the negatives, you can get tripped up and frustrated, but if you focus on what he does well, you'll appreciate what he brings to the table. You watch his at-bats play out, and you see he's not Wade Boggs working the count. But he is a tough out. You get him 0-2, 1-2, that's when the at-bat starts. He's a tough out and a very dangerous hitter, and I don't think he's a finished product.feedback

May 02 2017

It's good to see the excitement around our team again, and to win. It allows me to sleep better at night and I hope that continues. It's great to see the buzz and excitement around a lot of the players that are young and have a chance to be around here a long time.feedback

Apr 30 2017

We're enjoying coming to the ballpark, we're enjoying going to bed and getting a good night's sleep every night because in many cases, we're going to bed with our head on the pillow with another W in the win column.feedback

Apr 30 2017

Can't I just enjoy it? When you're playing extremely good baseball, there's nothing to make us believe right now we can't keep this going.feedback

Apr 27 2017

I wouldn't have what I have on the field now, all those guys you're loving now. You'd rob Peter to pay Paul.feedback

Apr 12 2017

I'm very concerned, given the fact that this has gone on since last April.feedback

Apr 10 2017 - SCOTUS

We've been brought down – some of it by decisions we've made that haven't worked out, and some of it by market constraints. Now we're going through that process of cleansing, and we're bringing ourselves back up.feedback

Apr 10 2017

I had a front-row seat for all of that stuff. That gives me at least a platform to have dialogue with ownership as well as combat the media narrative, which can be false or forgotten. I'm like: 'We've done it. I was there for it; I lived through it. Yes, you can.' As long as you honestly articulate with the fan base what you're doing and why you're doing it, then yes – it's been done, can be done and will be done again.feedback

Apr 10 2017

It's not a complaint, but we're not ever allowed to drop down, lose 100 on purpose and be rewarded for the quote-unquote 'tanking' that's been in play. That's not a path we're allowed to do.feedback

Apr 10 2017

Look at TV when Don Mattingly was hitting home runs and there's nobody in the stands in right field – it's empty.feedback

Apr 10 2017

You've got to string together as many quality decisions as you can over time – a five-, six-, seven-year period – to put yourself in a championship-caliber conversation. If you make the wrong decisions, it can really pull you back.feedback

Apr 10 2017

He has sponsorship commitments; he's got partners. He's got a season-ticket holder base, the TV network ratings, even though most of that is now owned by Fox. There's a responsibility he feels and a whole bunch of other things he has to account for that I don't.feedback

Apr 10 2017

It's not easy for ownership. Hal Steinbrenner is a pilot, and he uses pilot analogies all the time with me. Since I'm director of baseball operations, I get to look at things at 5,000 feet. He's the owner, so he has to look at things at 30,000 feet. I can be a lot more practical because it's pure baseball – what's the best baseball move? And I'm just like, The business is baseball, and if this is a good baseball decision, eventually it should be good for all other decisions.' But I don't own a club. I don't have to make those types of decisions, and those responsibilities are much greater.feedback

Apr 10 2017

We don't stick up banners for being a wild-card team. We never stuck up banners for American League champions. I'm not saying you're not proud to get into the postseason, whether it's a wild card or division champion, but the ultimate thing is, you want to be remembered. And to be remembered is to win championships. We should trade Cano before he's a free agent, because he will not re-sign with us. They're looking at money we won't be willing to commit. They're looking for a 10-year deal.feedback

Apr 08 2017

I'd say our concern is low. He's just somebody that's beat up.feedback

Apr 07 2017

There is a short term and a long term. But there is no guarantee you will get a long term if you sacrifice the short-term decision.feedback

Apr 07 2017

It is a balancing act.feedback

Apr 07 2017

He did what we asked this winter.feedback

Mar 21 2017

Injuries are a part of baseball. Miami was intense. The crowds, definitely on our side in Miami. San Diego was fun as well. Overall, a fun experience.feedback

Mar 19 2017 - Japan

For players coming from the Japanese professional league, you have to have recognition of the difference in the ball, the difference in the workload, their travel and obviously the cultural differences. You take all that into account as you project what they could be as they transfer over to the United States.feedback

Mar 13 2017

We couldn't keep going the way we were going.feedback

Mar 03 2017

I still think that there is more in the tank with Jacoby Ellsbury for us.feedback

Dec 08 2016

The price tags are off the chart, both trade acquisition as well as free agency.feedback

Dec 08 2016

It just comes down to will he maintain his health and performance levels, and if he does that then he'll be one of the elite closers throughout the contract.feedback

Dec 06 2016

That's a big one. That's a blockbuster. That was a wow. Obviously they gave up a lot and they got a lot.feedback

Dec 06 2016

Boston's like the Golden State Warriors now in baseball. They got their (Kevin) Durant and their (Draymond) Green and (Klay) Thompson and (Stephen) Curry.feedback

Dec 05 2016

We have been pursuing Aroldis Chapman. We also have been talking to Kenley Jansen. We also had talked with Melancon.feedback

Nov 07 2016

I'm not going to tell what the number is, but he gave me a number.feedback

Oct 05 2016

But that doesn't preclude me from being open-minded to any and all opportunities that present themselves.feedback

Oct 05 2016

They wanted us to press that reset button and in many cases tired of seeing what was transpiring in the first few months of this year, the been-there, done-that, it's time to do something that was not part of our DNA.feedback

Oct 05 2016

You'd have to be one piece away, and I would not recommend that type of decision-making as we approach the 2017 season. I think that would be a dangerous approach.feedback

Oct 05 2016

I remember when I was the assistant farm director while we were collecting a lot of the talent like what we collected. Who knew we were actually sitting on a dynasty waiting to happen? None of us.feedback

Aug 13 2016

I figured Judge, being his first call-up, he's not going to sleep anyway. Thank God he's young, because if that was me, I would be a zombie right now.feedback

Aug 13 2016

It's always in the best interest to be open-minded and listen. I wouldn't say anybody is untouchable.feedback

Aug 07 2016

We're going to look forward to him impacting our younger players. He's been a leader and a mentor.feedback

Aug 07 2016

He's always been a leader and mentor.feedback

Aug 07 2016

He's always had some ups and downs, but he's always gotten back up.feedback

Jul 31 2016

Trust me, I didn't sleep a wink last night, and there's a lot of sleepless nights we've had.feedback

Jul 31 2016 - Uber

We're trying to get back to a situation where we can build an uber team and a sustainable one. So we'll see where it takes us, but that's the effort that we've got going on here, and I think fans should be excited by that.feedback
