I hope the passing on guys like Bartolo Colon and Raul Ibanez and the trades of Vernon Wells and signing of Hafner puts to rest the ridiculous claim that Cashman is some sort of omnipresent "genius" when it comes to picking guys off the scrape heap. The fact that you people were making it seem like he had some sort of six sense was just laugh out loud ridiculous. It's always been dumb luck and it always will be. Case closed.
