Yankees intend to offer Brian Cashman a contract following 2014 season

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.

  1. 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.

      this is the worst news I've gotten in a while Rob…and he'll get a raise…the Yankees moved Torre (effectively after offering him just a 1 year contract for the 2008 season) as they must have felt that Torre's time was coming to an end but with proviso that they would wait and see…they should do the same with Cashman…give him a year to see what he can do, alternatively give him a multi-year deal, 2-3 years if they feel that would retain Cashman and fire him if he doesn't produce (however you measure that in such a short time)…i got to wonder what George would be doing or would have done already…loyalty to your employees is one thing but if the Yankees want to transition, they need to make a statement…same old same old isn't going to cut it…

      Oppenheimer and Newman are the reason why the farm system has been a joke. However, the current prospects would save them. Eh?

      I still want to know who is responsible for Pirela or Refsnyder being not in MLB level. I doubt it is Cashman as many people will lazily blame him for that. I think Girardi is the reason after the way he had handled Almonte as there was no reason to create 40 man spot to sparingly count on either 2B prospect. Also, I would like to know who the fuck said that Headley's defense at 3b was average when he was traded.

    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.

    • hotdog says:

      depends when you change GM's…sometimes a change in management can really lift a team and move it in a better direction…

    • Depending on the GM they hired, he might have enough clout to ask Levine and co. to butt out for a little while. Cashman seems perfectly happy with the current situation where he let's them do what they want.

    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.
