We were rumored to be in the trade conversation for him at the deadline. But thankfully we didn't get Shane Greene, he's been complete ass for the Braves.

"Officer Douchebag" pulls his gun on Cashman in Derien, CT on a traffic stop over some paperwork issue. Video below:

After watching the video, am I getting this straight?
- They had a phone call about a dude driving in a white Jeep Wrangler with a gun that he'd flashed before leaving a doctor's office.
- Meanwhile Cashman had picked up his stolen Jeep Wrangler a day or two prior, but it was still registering as stolen to their scanners.

My main question is why are they letting this dude drive his car around when it's still pinging as stolen? Shouldn't they clear that ish up FIRST? Granted, they're looking for the car and think the driver is armed so I don't know how big a difference it would make but that seems ridiculous and could end really badly for someone that's caught off guard.

Yeah, it's a good thing Cash was cool and the cops recognized him. They were very courteous to him, considering how many of them there were. They suspected they'd find that guy with a gun, so they were ready for trouble.

For other drivers, it could have been a bit worse.

Okay, so perhaps "Officer Douchebag" was a little over the top, but still. Just because you think someone may have a weapon doesn't mean that your weapon must be engaged. Maybe there's a mistake? Maybe he doesn't have a gun? There are better, less dangerous ways to engage someone like that because it can all go to hell if someone panics. Look at what just happened in Philadelphia. Narcotics Unit officers (I'm very familiar with that Unit, they're a bunch of cowboys) came busting in and they found trouble. 6 officers shot. Thankfully, all will survive. The neighborhood was shut down, etc.

For sure fam, I'm not trying to vindicate anyone. I don't really know what the best course of action in a situation like that is and it's not one I'll speculate on. I'm just looking at the factors and thinking that could have gone much worse if a number of things didn't go right. But the obvious way to avoid any of it would be to make sure the car isn't pinging as stolen before you let the owner drive off with it. So I'm more or less curious if this was a "well it's brian cashman..." thing or a "this coulda been anybody" situation (in which case man could it be ugly if the circumstances are a little different).

similar occurrence happened to a buddy 15 years ago. had his car stolen. found it a week later. cops were supposed to pull it off the wanted list. let him take the car home. another week goes by and my friend gets pulled over, put face first in the street, "but it’s my car! I reported it found and you guys recorded it as recovered and let me take it home a week ago!" stupid cops didn't even apologize after they called it in and verified it was ok.

I'm still upset we scored 0 runs with the bases loaded and 0 outs.

Reminded me of last year.

Yep that **** can't happen, we eclipsed a winning season for the 27th year in a row, going back to 1993.

Man Judge is in a HUGE slump smh and how many at bats does Ursehla need to be considered for a batting title? he leads the AL with a .342 average.

I’m liking the fire in our team.

I’m hoping like 5-6 guys grab bats and hit the top of the dugout tomorrow.

I know a lot of people were not excited by the Yankees bringing back both Gardner and Sabathia last offseason but they are obviously both very important to what has happened this year. They both seem to lead this team with emotion and Gardner has actually been good this year on the field too. They clearly fire up the team and have the respect of the younger players.

Love this video! :D

502 plate appearances by the end of the season or enough hitless ABs where he would still be able to have the top average.

Hope he qualifies or LeMahieu holds on.
