Is it relevant that on the day Brian Cashman slept on the streets of NYC to draw attention to the plight of homeless teens, he signed a 16-year-old Columbian to a $500,000 contract?

I honestly don't know. But sometimes, those are the questions that life delivers.

Yankees GM Cashman sleeps on NYC street to combat homelessness

New York Yankees: Brian Cashman homeless

On Thursday, November 20 New York Yankees’ general manager Brian Cashman will sleep out on the cold, concrete ground of New York City. He isn’t doing it because he has to, but because he wants to. Cashman is one of dozens of business leaders who will sleep outside and on the ground in order to raise awareness for homeless children across the country. This is all apart of Covenant...

The unnamed "one baseball executive" has given Yankee fans a strategy for 2015

GO AHEAD, BRIAN CASHMAN! BREAK THE INTERNET!Well, he tried. He traded Francisco Cervelli. By my count, that added at least 20 clicks - the entire Pittsburgh Pirates' fan base - to this week's IIH traffic.And yesterday, Cashman told Mark Feinsand - he of the old Daily News Fifth - that Cash is honkin' proud of his gritty work week."This felt busier than past meetings...

Brian Cashman, Girardi divided on A-Rod's role with Yankees

Yankees: Dueling opinions on A-Rod from Girardi and Cashman

In an offseason ripe with needs for the New York Yankees, there is a lot of emphasis on Alex Rodriguez and what type of player he’ll amount to as a 39, going on 40-year-old, who also missed the entire 2014 season due to his suspension for his part in the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug scandal.For some reason, Yankees manager Joe Girardi and general manager Brian Cashman...

Six For Six: Candidates To Fill The Hole At Short For The Yankees

While Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi focus on who will play 3B for the Yankees next year, I'm thinking about who will be pounding a glove one position over, at shortstop. By my count, there are at least a dozen men who could be the immediate successor to Derek Jeter. Some, like Brendan Ryan and Troy Tulowitzki, don't deserve a chance. Others, like Elvis Andrus, might...

Cashman makes drunken, wild-eyed, pie-in-the-sky prediction for 2015

Print the playoff tickets. Book your B-&-B reservations for next October, because Brian Cashman is optimistic that the Yankees can be in the 2015 playoff mix.Mind you, this is better than being hopeful. Any clod can have hope. He's optimistic, which means not pessimistic. Which is good. He's optimistic that the Yankees can be in the playoff mix. That beats saying they...
