CASHMAN, OH, WHAT A CLEVER FELLOW
Last month Masahiro Tanaka signed the fifth-largest contract for a pitcher in major league history. Today, GM Brian Cashman said, "We view him to be a really solid, consistent No. 3 starter.”
Given the Yankee’s history, Cashman is attempting to lower fan expectations and transitioning to MLB will likely be a challenge for Tanaka. Giving Cashman a pass on acquiring a $155 million No. 3 starter, will he please tell us who on the staff he considers a No. 1 and/or a No. 2.
The boys at the diner said most of the staff pitches like No. 2 but I think they meant something else.
