New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has called the comments of Houston Astros owner Jim Crane a ‘perversion’.

CHICAGO – Well done, Jim.

This was Brian Cashman’s insulting response to Astros ‘owner Jim Crane’s comments against the Yankees’ general manager at a Houston scandal.

“I don’t think anyone is going to dance to the song they are singing,” Cashman said ahead of four games against the White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field on Thursday. “I would say it’s called a twist, he’s trying to match maybe … the equivalent of a parking ticket maybe 162 felonies.”

Cashman was responding to Crane’s comments at USA Today earlier this week. Crane accused the New York boss of singing about the Astros scandal as one of the reasons why the Yankees survived his recent interview with The Athletic in the spring.

“The only thing that stopped [the 2017 Yankees] it was something that was forbidden and dangerous, “Cashman said earlier in the spring. … The only thing that bothered us was the devious and cruel way we were treated. ”

Crane described Cashman’s comments as “very unusual,” mainly due to a malicious letter from MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred sent to the Yankees in 2017, which came to light last month.

In the letter, Manfred stated that an MLB investigation found that the Yankees illegally used their video studio to steal billboards and deliver them to the barn in 2015 and 2016. The letter also stated that the Yankees use the iPad illegally to watch live broadcasts from bullpen in June 2017. MLB fined Yankees $ 100,000, and the money was donated to help with Hurricane Irma.

“There’s a letter, and you do,” Crane told USA Today. “You were there buddy, what are you talking about? If I were one of the teams, and I knew our team was doing it, I would just shut up and just do our business.”

Cashman further added that the letter did not state that the Yankees had given any real impression on the strikers during the bats ‘strike, which was part of the Astros’ 2017 campaign.

“I don’t think anyone can compare to what the Astros did except Houston,” Cashman said. “[That is] comments from each of the companies, including Major League baseball. “

In a statement after the letter was released, the Yankees said the group was not punished for stealing posters but for “misuse of cell phones in the dormitory,” adding that in the years under review, “the theft of posters was inappropriate. is being used as a tool of competition by many groups … and became illegal after the Commissioner announced the rules on September 15, 2017. “

And although Yankees President Randy Levine insisted that the letter be printed, Cashman said he did not mind releasing it.

“There is nothing out of the letter to scare us,” Cashman said.

Manfred issued a statement to all parties in September 2017, warning that he would hold all employees accountable for violating posters, and that violators would receive harsher punishments.

In the Astros investigation, MLB confirmed the long-term, real-life, theft of posters during their 2017 competition, which led to his suspension and fines, including the dismissal of manager AJ Hinch, a former Astros bench coach and now manager Red Sox, Alex Cora, and Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow. Former Astros player Carlos Beltran, now a broadcaster for the Yankees’ YES Network, has quit his new job as manager of the New York Mets after a scuffle.

“No one is buying the song they are singing, no one is going to dance to the song,” Cashman said of Crane’s comments. “And the reason I likened it to a anti-terrorist parking ticket is that, as you may recall, he lost several years of his initial choice, was fined millions of dollars and decided to fire his manager and general manager for his actions. There is nothing like that. That is why I said I was leaving. No one is buying. Nobody is singing that dance song. That’s the way it is. But I thank her for trying. “
