Instead of Mets, Cashman fires away at Torre

Posted on: April 14, 2011 6:10 pm
 
NEW YORK -- Brian Cashman has moved on.

The Mets aren't his target anymore. Now it's Joe Torre's turn.

At a press conference to announce that left-handed reliever Pedro Feliciano likely needs season-ending surgery, the Yankees general manager insisted he wasn't taking a shot at the Mets when he said Feliciano "was abused" when he made 92 appearances last year and 88 the year before.

"I'm not attacking the Mets," Cashman said. "I'm not throwing hand grenades their way."

Instead, Cashman talked about how Scott Proctor and other relievers were similarly overused when Torre was the Yankee manager. He said that he had gone so far as to ask Proctor to tell Torre he was hurting, so that Torre wouldn't use him.

"Did we have players here who were overused?" Cashman asked rhetorically. "Did I meet with Joe? Yes. I met with Proctor, and told him, 'You'd better stop telling Joe you can pitch.'

"There's no hypocrisy here."

Then, referring to current Yankee manager Joe Girardi, Cashman said, "That's stuff I don't have to worry about anymore."

Later, Cashman called Torre "old-school" in his approach to relievers.

"The old school is, 'I asked the reliever and he says he's fine,'" Cashman said. "We've had guys overused, but I went to everyone and tried to stop it. I went to the manager, the pitching coach, the player, the agent."

Cashman also said he believes Feliciano was hurt in spring training, and that he wasn't already damaged goods when the Yankees signed him to a two-year, $8 million contract.

"When we signed him, he was a known risk," Cashman said, referring to how much Feliciano had pitched. "But he didn't have a capsular tear, we don't believe."

  Most people got it right with their posts: Cashman USED to be wise and selective. Torre did not manage Feliciano the last two seasons (92 & 88 app.)
    Seems like Cashman wants to blame other people for his aquiring defective goods. He only need look into the mirror.
