Phillies to Interview Ng, Atkins for General Manager Role

Per Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Phillies are continuing their search for a general manager by scheduling interviews with Kim Ng and Ross Atkins. Ng made her mark first as a Chicago White Sox intern in 1991 and then as the Assistant Director of Baseball Operations in 1994 where she became the youngest and first female to ever defend and win an arbitration case on behalf of an MLB...

Major League Baseball has an alcohol problem

When New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman spoke with media about CC Sabathia’s decision to leave the team for immediate alcohol rehabilitation, he treated the moment with the severity and concern it warrants. Joe Girardi, the Yankee skipper, did the same. This is a serious moment in a man’s life, and the Yankees brass treated it that way. So why were there Budweiser...

Sources say that the New York Yankees pitcher realized he needed help during the team’s final regular season road trip in Baltimore last weekend, during which he spent a...

Yankees unveil startling new concept: A hitting secondbaseman who can be replaced in late innings for defense

On August 1, when Brian Cashman - Sports Illustrated candidate for the future Hall of Fame - traded a pair of promising lugnuts to Seattle for Dustin Ackley, the saddest part of the deal was finding that Ackley no longer played 2B. Over the last two years - since Robbie Cano jogged into Starbucks City - Ack had been banished to outposts of the Mariner realm where you'd expect to...

Isn't it time for Brian (Fredo) Cashman to grow the bleep up?

Last October, after the Yankees announced that Brian (Fredo) Cashman would be coming back as general manager, I made a conscious choice that I had to pull back on my "Cashman must go" narrative in Subway Squawkers. Not only was my anti-Cashman rhetoric futile, but all of the negativity was getting me down. Since then, I have made a conscious choice to have more positive things in...

Having taken their victory lap, the self-congratulatory Yankees have a month left to toast this ongoing disastrous season

In case you missed it, Sports Illustrated this week gives Brian Cashman a 2,000-word foot massage, barely a paragraph shy of a romp at the Airport Ramada. The upshot: Cashman is now a Yankee god, an icon comparable to Ruth and Gehrig, his bald head is bulletproof, and the 2015 Yankees stand as testimonial to his competence... this, as they plummet headlong into The Abyss.Yes...

Forget SI Article, Yankees' GM Brian Cashman Looks Great Right Now

Did Brian Cashman really tell Derek Jeter that he'd rather have Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop for the New York Yankees? Did he really enjoy being one of the few to "tell the Captain no" in the midst of Jeter's "diva-like tendencies?" If you are to believe an article in this week's Sports Illustrated, the answer to these questions is yes. The Tulowitzki comments were supposedly made...

Yankees finally get Dustin Ackley

The Yankees had been chasing Dustin Ackley for a while. I don’t know exactly how long the pursuit had gone on, but I remember rumors around the 2013 winter meetings, and they’ve popped up from time to time since. Somewhere, in the back of his mind, Brian Cashman maintained his interest in Ackley, and now […]

When you call him, have your secretary say, "Holding on...

New York Yankees: The Cashman dilemma

“I’m ready to rock and roll,” said New York Yankees’ general manager Brian Cashman in regards to the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline. Cashman is actively seeking to improve the team, but has yet to finalize a trade. The Yankees are officially at their halfway point in the season, playing 82 games going 41-41 and are currently third in the AL East. I’d say it’s about...
