Andrew Cashner Would Have Sat Out If Traded To Undesirable Team

Back in May, right-hander Andrew Cashner suggested to Dan Connolly of The Athletic that he’d consider sitting out the rest of the season if the Orioles sent him to an undesirable destination by the July 31 trade deadline. Cashner, whom Baltimore traded to Boston last weekend, confirmed to Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com that he indeed would have held out through year’s end had the Orioles dealt him somewhere he didn’t want to go.

“I mean what I said,” he told Cotillo. “This is one of the places I would come. It wasn’t a place that I would ever not come to. We’re talking about the World Series champions. Why would you not come here?”

Philadelphia was the only other team that showed reported interest in Cashner before his trade to the Red Sox, but the Phillies stopped their pursuit because of concerns over his makeup.

As a Red Sox fan, I wouldn't mind seeing Cashner invoke Operation Shutdown starting like right now, please.

I mean, Derek Bell belongs in the Primer HOF, right?

This is a man who voluntarily signed with the Baltimore Orioles.

Agreed; did he only want to be traded to a lousy team with bad fielding and no national press coverage?

If he wasn't traded, would he still have sat out?

They got somethin' against cross-dressers in Philly or something?

Maybe the concerns over his makeup had something to do with his saying he might retire if he was traded.

Too much aura, too little mystique.

Those concerns didn't stop them from acquiring the rest of their roster...
