The latest entry in the long-running series in which Brian Cashman discusses the current state of the New York Yankees. With his headwarmer.

Cashman: I gotta say, Headwarmer, I’m glad I was able to unload Ottavino.

Headwarmer: Yep.

Cashman: And to the Red Sox, no less. Our hated rivals in the East.

Headwarmer: Sure, sure.

Cashman: I mean, it helped us free up some payroll. Everybody loves free payroll. The fans appreciate financial prudence.

Headwarmer: Who the fuck doesn’t love a team that’s good with money?

Cashman: Exactly! Now, of course, I hate to see Ottavino doing so well for the Red Sox. In fact, as I told those reporters, the last thing I wanted to do was put him in the hands of our competitors. But ultimately I’m not afraid to do business with everybody if it serves our purposes.

Headwarmer: Right. And those purposes are…?

Cashman: Well, to win, of course.

Headwarmer: And how’s that workin out for you, Turkey Tits?

Cashman: It’s a long season. I’m sure time will prove me the victor in the Ottavino Affair.

Headwarmer: Well said. Now, would you please put your testicles on the putting green.

Cashman: Is this going to hurt?

Headwarmer: *raises golf club* Yes.
