Billywitz's Comedy Jam

Here, incidentally, are the key lines that Billywitz wrote for Cashman's Cooperstown plaque, as noted by El Duque.  

Trigger warning:  just try to read it without snorting hot coffee through your nose.  I especially love the part about how spending half the farm system on Sonny Gray and a bunch of rentals has been flushed down the memory hole:

So, just because the Yankees were valued by Forbes at $4 billion last April and were shedding more than $50 million in payroll at the end of last season, did not mean they were going to splurge on an extravagance like Harper or a finishing touch like Corbin.

“I don’t believe we need to abandon the successful, organized detailed process because now we’re knocking on the door,” Cashman said. “It doesn’t mean all of the sudden you become haphazard, or just reactive or emotional. I think, again, we’re keeping it simple.”

Oh, that's being way too optimistic, KD. It means:

—Making the Bud Selig One-Game Wild Card Play-In

—Winning It
