George Ticks Off Ca$hman

Newsday is reporting that Ca$hman was NOT invited to the Tuesday night meeting between George and Pedro, and the Junkee GM was quite upset about it. Folks, what did I tell you? This is a return to the Bronx Zoo of the mid-'80s, and I'm telling you, the team is falling apart. Ca$hman no longer has a say in any matter (boy, he's got an easy job!) and whenever George is the GM, the Junkees make stupid moves. Throughout the late '80s and early '90s, until his suspension, George made all the decisions and the GMs were just a bunch of puppets. For the few years he was out of office, and the years after when he didn't stick his nose where it didn't belong, you saw the acquisitions of Paul O'Neill, Jimmy Key, David Cone, Wade Boggs, Tino Martinez, and all the guys who made the Junkees a winning team.

Now let's look at the past few years. Enrique Wilson misplays a ball in right field, and a couple of days later Raul Mondesi is brought in. Then you have Kenny Lofton; Jose Contreras; Jason Giambi; Aaron Boone. And soon, hopefully, they'll add Pedro Martinez to that list.

Every offseason, I've been fretting that the Junkees are going to win it all. This past year, with A-Schmuck, I was totally despondent. Well, no more. At the rate things are going, I have absolutely nothing to worry about.

Once again moron, you are in dire need of a history lesson

The Bronx Zoo by Sparky Lyle was published in February of 1980 and was about the Yankees of the 70’s not the Yankees of the 80’s, dipwad.

I’m not even going to waste my time reading the rest of your retarded piece as a quick scan reveals more historical ignorance. I just like abusing you for your above average stupidity.
