Good morning, folks!  Davey Mac here with another Sports Report for ya!  We’ve got news about Bryce Harper!  NBA scores!  Hockey matchups!  And tonight’s NFL game!  But first…

…If you missed it…Yankee general manager Brian Cashman finally met with the media following this disastrous season for the Yanks.  Well, now we have what Yankee owner Hal Steinbrenner things of this past year in the Bronx.  Steinbrenner spoke with reporters recently and called the season “awful.”  He also said: “We accomplished nothing. We didn’t win a division, didn’t make it to the playoffs, didn’t win a series in the playoffs, much less a championship.  The fans didn’t get anywhere close to what they deserved.”

Steinbrenner also said he consulted with Aaron Judge about Yankee manager Aaron Boone’s future with the team and Judge wants Boone back.  The Yankee Captain says he and his teammates believe in Boone…that Boone always has their backs…that they like playing for him…and they believe he is a good manager.

But Judge does not seem happy with Brian Cashman (like the rest of us).  Judge met with Cash and Hal earlier in the Autumn to express his displeasure with the Yankees not going after star players.  Judge also told Cashman that he needs to put more value on batting average and RBI’s (as opposed to some of the deep analytics that Cashman has been relying on).

Will Hal finally cut bait on Cashman like most Yankee fans want?  He has struggled mightily at putting together a top notch roster.  If this were George…Cashman would have been gone by October 1st.

It’ll be interesting to see what other moves Hal makes.  But he needs to get this once-proud organization back on track!  I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents…now on to the Scoreboard!
