Why The Sudden Jackassery, Cash Man?!
Monday, January 28, 2008
Like most Yanks fans (I think, anyway...) I love Bernie Williams. His contributions to the team - yes, even in his last year! - are countless and undeniable - and I truly find it hard to believe that anyone invested (emotionally or otherwise) in the team would have hard feelings towards the dear man.

Apparently there is at least one man harboring feelings that are a tad bit less cheerful toward the Bernster: The Cash Man! On Friday night he expressed some feelings on Bern, saying that he had a "terrible" season in 2005 and it was wrong of Torre to play him as much as he did. To be fair, Bernie did have a poor year offensively - .249 average, 12 homers .321 OBP - but his defense was fine (.991 fielding percentage) and he still had a positive impact on the team as far as attitude and morale goes. The real surprising part of this story to me is that considering the fact that Cash really hasn't been all that outspoken when it comes to dissatisfaction with individual players, and saying such things about a player that isn't even on the team anymore seems pointless (what is to gain?), why would he bother?

I don't know, folks... what dost thou think? Should he have shut his face and kept his negative feelings about a player that has meant so much to the fans and his teammates to himself? Or are his feelings valid and perfectly fine to share in a manner that obviously would make its way to the public?

    I'm on the "he should shut his trap" train. What's the point of berating/humiliating a player after they are gone??

    There was no point in what Cash did, he seems like he doesn't give a s*** anymore and is just saying whatever pops into his head.

    By the way Maureen, jackassery is a great word.

    I cannot imagine in what context even the CashMan would use the word terrible to describe any of Bernie's years, certainly considering all his tenure with the team and, IMHO, possibly HOF credentials. He does lead the Bombers in many offensive post season stats, I think, and as you point out a positive club house inflence as well as roll model. Maybe a tad short of HOF, but it seems outrageous that a Johnny-come-lately head office guy who has been using scotch tape to hold a dynasty together, a job which was made easier by the target of his critism, and he needs to publicly apologize and explain whereforth he was comin from, or, as another option voluntarily resign and commit himself to Bellvue for intensive care cause obviouly the dude is way over the stressed out edge. (there may be some run-on grammar issues with that sentence).
    Could he have been defending his weak job performance under intense scrutiny from the Steinbros?

    I know it's State of the Union Night but he's such an ass that I'll listen with my back turned and respond to your question about the crassman. He can say whatever about whomever (provided it's not tampering)But to say what he said about Bernie gives us a couple of things. 1) Either Crassman has lost it, as Bernie IS a Yankee fan favorite or 2) He is kissing up to the Stein family (contract year) as Bernie was not a favorite of Old Stein. WE WANT BERNIE DAY!!!WE WANT BERNIE DAY!!

    I think Cash's comments were a bit too harsh, but Bernie also didn't know when to quit. Kind of like Craig Biggio. Their respective teams kept them around out of a professional courtesy to the players wants, rather than the teams.

    I said this once in my own blog regarding a particular Yankees game, and I believe it could also apply to Cashman right now as well:

    "I truly feel that anyone who can look into the face of Bernie Williams and root against him has a heart of cold, hard steel."

    Cash should "shut his trap".
    Bernie is a beloved ex-Yankee
    and to criticize him after he has left the team is beyond stupid.
