Yankees interested in Jose Quintana, twice released by Brian Cashman.

Adding to the Brian Cashman list of you can't make up stuff like this.

Jose Quintana twice "Granted Free Agency" by Brian Cashman, Yankee general manager. Wednesday, November 9, 2016

After twice messing up on Quintana, Cashman did this:

Brian Cashman strikes out on Gleyber Torres in 2013, then trades Aroldis Chapman to make up for that failure. Tuesday, July 26, 2016
