Brian Cashman, for one, was not surprised to learn that Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon, both former Yankees, failed drug tests. “Unfortunately, not surprised,” Cashman said on ESPN New York 98.7 FM. … “You see some spike in performance,” Cashman said. “You hope it’s not the case, but you scratch your head and you wonder at the same time.

“In Bartolo’s case, as well as he has done last year as well through this year, at his age, after coming back from that surgery, makes you scratch your head.” … “When we traded him to Atlanta we had him as a low-end, everyday regular or an excellent fourth outfielder,” Cashman said of Cabrera.

So…does that mean Cash was burying his head in the sand when Colon was doing so well last year?
