Cashman to Pettitte: don't 'Favre' us

Posted on: January 19, 2011 10:05 am
 
Brian Cashman One of the beauties of covering baseball here at CBSSports.com has been the ability to laugh at our NFL brethren when it comes to Brett Favre coverage, while I don't even have to pay attention to him or the texts he's sent me.

Anyway, it seems Yankees general manager Brian Cashman paid attention to the Favre soap opera and doesn't what a repeat in the Bronx with Andy Pettitte.

"He's opting not to play right now but that might change, it might not," Cashman said at the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting in Cromwell, N.J. on Tuesday, according to the Middletown Press . "I told him, don't 'Brett Favre' us. You got to be all in and fully dedicated to play. Do I need him? I need him, but I don't want him to play if his heart's not in it."
-- C. Trent Rosecrans

Cashman to Pettitte: don't 'Favre' us

Petitte will soon sit down on a couch and tell himeslef "do I want to get up and play another full season of baseball?". My gut feeling he
doesnt have the mood to get up and off the couch. He is having so much fun with his family and himself with the idea on moving onto the next chapter in his life.  Broadcasting? Seclusion? Coaching maybe...

Cashman to Pettitte: don't 'Favre' us

If A-Rod is worth $30 mill per year, Pettitte is worth at least $35 mill per year.  Pay him and offer him a seven year deal as a peace offering.  Helll, the Yankees should call Scott Brosius out of retirement and offer him $20 mill per year.   The Yankees print money.

Pettitte is entitled to "do as he pleases".  Well, sure, it is America after all.  Let's remember however that Pettitte had Rivera closing for him his entire career.  He'd be very unlikely to be a fringe HOF player if not for Rivera.  Not to mention, he's gotten a total pass on the steroid issue.

Cashman to Pettitte: don't 'Favre' us

It's a shame this guy has Steinbrenner's footprints all over his back the same day this beauty shows up.  He should quit the Yanks and find a team that understands what he's is all about.  Clearly he doesn't need his chain yanked around by idiot players  or o(wiener)like Favre and Steinbrenner.   He should drop an early deadline date for Petite and start talking about moving on if Andy doesn't batter-up.  Besides, Favre's last year was a disaster.  Who cares about an overpriced pitcher?

I hate to be the grammaer/spelling police but um there are way too many typos in this.

As for Pettite pulling a Favre, Pedro, Delgado ... hey if I'm the Yanks I would make the decision for him and just tell him "look we're set with what we got. Bye."

Pettitte to Ca$hman, stop lying and just be a good ATM machine. Your attempt at growing a backbone is laughable. Remember A-Fraud's opt out? "He he opts out, he won't be back."- Brian Ca$hman. Result? A 10 year 300 million dollar deal.

Honestly, Pettitte is entitled to do as he pleases. He's done more for his team and the game then Ca$hman could do in 50 life-times. The guy is clutch. Ca$hman can't make a deal unless the other team is dumping salary.

Brian Ca$hman should get on his hands and knees and thank his maker for his life. He has zero talent and has been given a blank check for years. Now this wimp is talking tough? Hysterical.
