It's alarming that a nominally grown man who doesn't have the (still unacceptable, of course) excuse of being a tabloid headline writer would call another man "K-Long."
Were these not tweets?
With all due respect to gef's chosen vocation, I don't understand how correspondents here at the THINK factory get all adither over the output of modern journalists. Assign these writings their proper (low) worth and move on.
With all due respect to gef's chosen vocation
“Am I mad at Kevin Long because of that? No,” said Cashman. “But do I think that commentary jibes with Kevin Long’s comments internally in that clubhouse regarding this player prior to him going down? Absolutely not. …
But in general, shouldn't evaluating the condition of the guy's wrist primarily be a conversation with the medical staff, not the hitting coach?
the Tex Message
"Hey, Mark, how do you feel? Ready to come back and play Yankee baseball?!"
"I'm fine and ready to help the team"
Again this is clearly what was communicated to Cashman, unless Cash is lying to throw K-Long under the bus.
For his all imo phony "objective pipe" bs, Cashman never takes responsibility for anything. He has always seemed like a weasel quick to throw other people (it was Tampa HQs fault!) under the bus. I see know reason to see this any differently.
If he communicated it up the chain of command, he should say so (perhaps only internally).
Maybe he didn't want to ruin anyone's weekend.
It's the hitting coach's fault a player was cleared to play when he wasn't ready to play?
Im pretty sure he's never publicly blamed Tampa, its a common but well supported conspiracy theory that explains lots of the organisations dysfunction.. Hank himself admitted cutting Cash out of the A-Rod negotiations.
It's managements fault when the hitting coach knows a player is still injured and doesn't tell anyone?
it was striking to see Cash willing to air the franchise's dirty laundry
Yes, it is. It's management's responsibility to clear healthy players and not clear unhealthy ones, in consultation with medical professionals. Hitting coaches aren't doctors and aren't qualified to judge whether players are capable of playing; relying on them to carry out that role would be ridiculous.
Isn't it more striking at this point when he doesn't?
We may have some posters who have taken involuntary vows of chastity.
