Cashman shifts the penalty from Boone to himself.
“It̵7;s easy from my chair to say It’s harder to stick with what you really have because you believe in it,” he said. they work hard They are good at what they do. We don’t get results I’m the head of baseball operations. That is more about me than them.”
