It is up to Cashman to fix this problem. No, he’s not responsible for Pineda’s injury, but he is responsible for preventing what could easily become a pitching disaster. It’s also up to Cashman to communicate how he’s going to go about this. He is very capable of the latter. The former is tougher.
Really? Cashman has to tell the media — and it’s clear from the rest of Raissman’s column that he believes it’s the media who is entitled to know this, not the team — what he plans to do? Should he hold a press conference announcing which five pitchers he’s thinking of trading for? Should he provide updates about who he has scouts looking at?
I know we all accept that New York is a slightly different kind of place than the other media markets, but when you really stop to think about it, it’s pretty nuts.
