Here is General Manager Brian Cashman on the state of the recently-struggling New York Yankees.
"We're just not playing good baseball right now and when you're playing professional teams you have a chance to lose a number of games," Cashman said Monday. "I think it's just been a number of different things right now going wrong all at once.
"Our starting pitching out of the gate, for the month of April, was terrific. The last two turns, they haven't been as good, and coinciding with a number of injuries and some guys not hitting that are healthy, it's a lot of different things adding up to us not playing as well as we can play... . April went really well for us, but May obviously hasn't been as kind."
