Hindsight is 20/20

Playing backseat GM is pretty easy when you have the benefit of hindsight. Being a successful GM requires a healthy dose of foresight, a large pinch of scouting, a fair amount of logic and business acumen, and a few gallons of luck. Which is, of course, why it’s so easy to play backseat, hindsight GM. See, in the middle of March, there began talk that the Yankees might...

Is Matt Thornton the latest in the Cashman LOOGY Curse?

In the least celebrated move of the winter, the Yankees signed veteran LH bullpen lugnut Matt Thornton to a two-year contract. He was supposed to solve a problem that has haunted the team for 17 years: Finding the guy who can strike out a lefty slugger in the eighth inning of a tight game. Not since Graeme Lloyd, the super-Aussie bloke himself, arrived have the Yankees sported a...

That’s right, Brian Cashman took a shot at the orange birds this week, telling the New York Post that their successful 2012 was nothing more than a luck-based statistical improbability. Said Cashman, ...

Is Brian Cashman on the hot seat in his contract year?

We talk a lot about player’s contracts. In the offseason, it’s almost all we talk about. Is so-and-so worthy of his contract? Will player X, whose contract is expiring, play well enough to get re-signed? And so on, and so forth. But players are not the only people whose contract situations should be followed. No, we should all have our eye squarely on Brian Cashman, who...

Brian Cashman Says the Yankees Don't Need a First Baseman

There are nearly as many unanswered questions for the New York Yankees 2014 roster as there are answered ones. Starting rotation? Nowhere near five pitchers. Outfielders? Nowhere near certainty. Catcher? Nowhere near MLB talent. Third base? Don’t even ask. First base? Nope, apparently that’s not a question. Disregard the fact that Mark Teixeira played 15 games...

Seattle is quite happy with Cashman's "steals"

It's not always fun to look at Brian Cashman's trades from the other side of the equation. The Yankee version goes that we acquire solid veterans and give up nothing, either because the other team wanted to dump salary or they simply aren't as smart as us.Take Seattle, of course. Of course, the ultimate deal - Jesus Montero for Michael Pineda - now looks, at best, to...

Yankees: Cashmans press conference proves it is time to spend to contend

New York Yankees trade rumors: big decisions ahead for Cashman

Brian Cashman (AP Photo/Kathy Willens) Even before the first pitch of the 2013 season was thrown, the New York Yankees were hit with a plethora of injures. A franchise, which has been a staple in the playoffs 17 of the last 18 seasons, was projected to be out of the postseason picture. Never count the Yankees out! Despite all their injuries and the mid-summer classic around the corner...
