The general manager of the New York Yankees, Brian Cashman, defended himself against the attacks of the owner of the Houston Astros, Jim Crane, who compared the scandal of the stealing of signs of the sidereals with the treatment that the Bronx Mulos recently received. by MLB and society in general.
Crane questioned the $100,000 penalty MLB handed out to the Yankees for trying to steal signs in the 2015 and 2016 seasons, calling it unfair compared to all that Houston experienced for its lack of 2017.
«No one is going to dance to the beat he’s playing,» Cashman told NJ.com. «He’s trying to deflect the scandal. It’s like trying to compare a parking lot to 162 felonies. I don’t think anyone is going to buy what he’s saying. Nobody is going to believe him, but I applaud him for trying.»
Brian Cashman on Jim Crane’s recent comments: «I don’t think anybody’s gonna dance to the tune he’s singing, to be quite honest…I’d say it’s called deflection and him trying to equate probably an equivalent of a parking ticket to maybe 162 felonies.»

Recall that the Yankees were fined by the commissioner’s office for using their video room to try to steal signs, which were passed from running back to second baseman to pitcher. The Astros, by contrast, were penalized $5 million and draft pick losses.
