Yankees intend to offer Brian Cashman a contract following 2014 season 10

Brian Cashman

Despite the Yankees facing the dangers of back-to-back seasons without the postseason, The Bronx Bombers appear interested in re-signing a familiar face for the 2015 season and beyond.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Yankees intend to offer Yankees GM Brian Cashman a contract following the 2014 season. While the last two seasons have been a disappointment, the organization doesn’t blame Cashman for the disappointing matters at hand.

Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner was non-committed last month to re-signing Cashman but there’s a good chance their tunes have changed since then.

    This is bad news. Cashman is not nearly as bad as some people make him out to be, he's actually one of the better GM's, but it's time for change. He's gotten too comfortable and has not adapted quickly enough to the new environment where teams have enough money to outbid him occasionally. In 10 years, he's done very little with the farm system outside of promoting relief pitchers.

    Rob, I agree with you whole heartedly. Cashman has actually been building poor teams and has not had to account for it. True the owners like to sign players on the sly, but overall the whole organization has failed to get or build any regular position players in some time. We have catchers, but where are the shortstops or other infielders? The outfielders also have only been of AAAA quality.

    I don't see how a different GM will make Yankees better. However, I hope someone has a knack for finding a cheap alternative to bolster the lineup that is consist of crappy expensive players like Arod and Teixeria in the same manner as Cashman had for bullpen.

    If Yankees actually sign Cashman then I hope it is a 3 year contract or less because 2017 is the best time to make a major overhaul. New GM and new manager should handle a complete different roster from today for 2017.

    Unfortunately, I get feeling that no matter who is a GM for next year or beyond, Levine and his idiot company will overstep GM and make few moves.

    You can't blame Cashman for everything as Hal like his dad supposedly resigned AROD, and ordered many other bad deals. Still, for every decent Cashman trade like acquiring Prado, Headley, he sticks the Yankees with massive problems like Tanaka, Beltran, McCann, Ellsbury, and that's just in the last 12 months. Ellsbury's a good player but not at 20 + million over 7 years, etc.
