Cashman Rips Bernie

Postby bigh0rt » Sun Jan 27, 2008 1:15 pm

The rift between Williams and the team got personal Friday night.

Speaking at William Paterson University in New Jersey, general manager Brian Cashman said Williams spent too much time with his burgeoning music career “and that took away from his play” on the field.

Cashman said Williams had a “terrible season” in 2005 and that former manager Joe Torre was wrong to play Williams as often as he did in 2006 because better players were available.

...Told of Cashman’s harsh assessment, Williams first said he didn¹t want to comment. But then he paused and took a deep breath.

“I don’t think he has any basis to say anything like that,” Williams said. “Let me put it this way: Questioning a person’s commitment to the team is a very serious accusation, at least in my book.”

It's really too bad that one of the fan's favorite players has essentially been alienated from the team. Hopefully Bernie can get with Cashman and they can work this out. It would be great to see a Bernie Williams Day during the last year of the current Stadium.

I'm actually really surprised to hear Cashman say something like that. He's usually pretty reserved.

Despite the fact that Bernie was my favorite player post-Mattingly, Cashman was out of line. No reason to spew that garbage about a Yankee hero. You know Bernie's going to be back to be enshrined in monument park in a few years. Cashman should just shut his trap.

I agree with all you're saying.What gets me thinking is what provoked the pretty reserved Cashman to go off like that?
