Brian Cashman (56), general manager of the New York Yankees, who remained silent despite criticism from fans, opened up about the team’s performance this season at an official event.
The New York Post reported on the 24th (Korean time), “General manager Cashman acknowledged the failure of this season by mentioning the word ‘disaster’ in a press conference with the press ahead of the game.”바카라
According to the media, Cashman said, “This season has been a disaster, and this is very surprising.” I didn’t expect it to turn out like this,” he said.
The Yankees spent a total of 279,361,190 dollars (approximately 370,153,570,000 won) in player salaries this season, ranking second in the major leagues in this category after the New York Mets. However, as of the 25th, the record was 61-66, with an odds ratio of 0.480, and it fell to the bottom of the American League East Division. It has played 18 games with Baltimore, the number one player in the district. It does not seem easy to even escape from the bottom by a 6.5 game gap with 4th place Boston.
Recently, the end of the Yankees’ downfall cannot be seen, as they lost 9 straight games in 41 years. If the season ends like this, the Yankees will have the disgrace of failing to reach a .500 win rate for the first time in 31 years since 1992.
Founded in 1903, the Yankees are famous as the most popular team representing the major leagues. In addition to its deep history, it is also outstanding in its ability to win the World Series as many as 27 times. His career record also boasts a win rate of 0.569 with 10,663 wins and 8,066 losses.
In particular, in the late 1990s and early 2000s, they won the World Series four times, including three in a row, and earned the nickname ‘Evil Empire’. However, since winning the World Series in 2009, it has not been able to reproduce its former glory.
Because of their shocking performance, the Yankees have been criticized by fans all season. Voices that not only general manager Cashman but also head coach Aaron Boone (50) should be sacked have been coming out since the beginning of the season. Local media, including the New York Post, point to Cashman’s press conference and interpret it as “an intention to calm down angry fans by acknowledging failure by himself as there is no place to retreat to the fans’ complaints.”
The media said, “There is little the Yankees can do at this point. Calling up a talented new player will give them a momentary boost, but it will not revive an already failed season.” “It looks like he has a lot of work to do in the upcoming offseason to prove that his ‘disastrous failed season’ was simply a one-off.”
