Brian Cashman can’t spend money

The Yankees have watched as several players who could help them in 2013 have gone to other teams. And, depending on who you believe, Brian Cashman is not even making offers on these dudes. Andrew Marchand hears why:

 

Even if this does represent something new in YankeeLand — and I have my doubts, because Cashman probably always had to ask permission before making significant outlays back in the big-spending days — this comment sort of makes me chuckle.

Might it be the case that “Cashman told an agent he can’t spend money” is the equivalent of a girl telling a guy “I’m just not interested in dating anyone right now?”  In both cases, the effort could very well be made for the right guy, but He/She is just not that into you, dude.

Seriously, though, the Yankees are in deep, deep trouble and will likely have to field a team of six position players next Opening Day.
