Yankees GM Brian Cashman said it is his "responsibility" for his last place team's poor start more than manager Joe Girardi or his staff because he put the roster together. Cashman said that he would not represent how owner Hal Steinbrenner feels at the moment, but added Steinbrenner is "clearly not happy." The Yankees are 8-15 as they head into tonight's first pitch against the Orioles.
