Only 10th in steals and still 6th best in strikeouts. 2000, 6th in HR, 6th in steals, 6th in batting, 5th in OBP, 6th in strikeouts. It’s incredible how Jets fans like to act like Rex did everything with “Mangini’s teams” — Cashman all of his success in the late 90’s early 2000’s was with rosters pretty much built from scratch by Gene Michael and the previous GM Bob Watson The guy just is not that good. Even the success in recent years was mostly due to Gene Michael nailing draft pick after draft pick and now he’s dead. Cashman has a license to do whatever he wants and he’s not a great talent evaluator so get ready the 80’s are back 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
