Brian Cashman quotes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
