Keep hope alive: Will Brian Cashman be given his walking papers at the end of the year?

I guess $2.7 billion doesn't go as far as it used to. That is how much New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman has spent in Yankee payroll since 2001 to get exactly one World Series title in 14 years. But even though Cashman has literally outstpent every other team in the majors over that time frame, the Red Sox, Cardinals and Giants have more World Series titles than the Yanks do...

With the Yankiverse in flames, John and Suzyn have begun talking about next year

I can't watch these games. No. Let me rephrase: I can't watch this team.What unspeakable crimes did John and Suzyn commit in their previous lives, which forced them into this Hell - calling 190 games, counting the grapefruit league - of this tedious, rancid, inept collection of salary dumps?That's all the Yankees are: A giant, six-foot high, steel-sided, salary dumpster...

On Brian Cashman's Likely Return As Yankees GM

As you probably know, Jon Heyman reported yesterday that Yankees GM Brian Cashman will likely be staying put. Heyman believes the Yankees will sign Cashman to a new contract once his current one expires at the end of the season. Let the uproar begin. Actually it began yesterday after Heyman's article was posted. With the exception of, perhaps Joe Girardi, Cashman is the one...

Reports: Cashman expected to get extension from Yankees

The New York Yankees have had an up-and-down year, but it appears as though it won't cost general manager Brian Cashman his job. The Yankees are expected to offer Cashman, whose three-year, $9 million deal expires in October, an extension at the end of the season, according to multiple reports. "There hasn't been any discussions yet,'' a source told New York...

Yankeetorial: Diamonds and Brian Cashman are forever

Great night to be a Yank fan. For a moment there, it felt like Tino and Brosius were anchoring the infield again. Then today, you wake up and find we are three-losses down for the away-game wild card, with 25 left to play. Ugh. It was just a dream, folks... just a dream.Yesterday, the Incompetent Empire leaked news that Brian Cashman will almost surely return next year as GM...

Report: Yankees to offer Brian Cashman new contract

The New York Yankees will likely miss the playoffs for a second straight season, but long-time general manager Brian Cashman doesn’t have to worry about his job. According to CBS Sports Jon Heyman, the Yankees will ask Cashman to “return for a 18th season as general manager and beyond.” Yankees higher-ups are impressed with Cashman’s in-season pickups, including starterBrandon...

Despite unfulfilling year, Yankees intend to offer Cashman contract

The Yankees appear likely to miss the playoffs for a second straight year, but top team brass isn't about to blame any possible disappointment on longtime general manager Brian Cashman, and by and large give Cashman good or better marks for his performance, assuring that he'll be asked to return for a 18th season as general manager and beyond, according to people familiar...

How Are the Yankees Still in Playoff Contention?

Joe Girardi and Brian Cashman must be sorcerers. That can be the only explanation for the New York Yankees’ ability to hang around the periphery of American League playoff contention. Their rotation lost starters CC Sabathia, Masahiro Tanaka, and Ivan Nova for the season, and only recently got Michael Pineda back from the 60-day disabled list. Outfielder Alfonso Soriano was...

Key To New York Yankees Success? A Horse Mask

The New York Yankees have miraculously stayed competitive, overcoming underwhelming performances and devastating injuries. Most would attribute their success to the bargain-based trades that Brian Cashman made at the deadline.  Bringing in players like Stephen Drew, Chase Headley, Martin Prado, and Brandon McCarthy has paid huge dividends. However, those inside the New York Yankees...

Could Brian (Supergenius) Cashman be on his way out? Please, Hal (Rip Van Winkle) Steinbrenner, make it happen!

Believe it or not, I actually have a smidgen of hope this week for the Yankees. Not for this season, of course. I have never had any expectations that the Yankees would actually go anywhere in 2014, other than to the bottom of the AL East. But that Hal (Rip Van Winkle) Steinbrenner may actually have stirred from the slumber he has been in over the past five seasons and is finally...

A cold, hard wind is about to blow through the Yankiverse, and life is not going to be the same

Tonight, the Evil Empire plays the Devil Rays, a team that statistically has left even more runners in scoring position this season than the Yankees have. (Yep, I looked it up. The Yankees are actually in the middle of the RISP pack, though this could be a factor of their inability to put runners in scoring position.) Tampa has turned back into a pumpkin, back to 6th place in a five...

The Yankees celebrate the memory of Pauly O'Neill by playing Patty Smyth's "The Warrior?"

For the Yankees, it might as well have been Pauly O'Shore Day.  Paul O'Neill made a lukewarm speech, thanking several Yankees individually and then his dad. I kept waiting for a great, memorable line. You know: "I consider myself the luckiest..." It never came. I blame his time with YES. Something happens to announcers. They say so much about nothing that, when...

For Yankees, Time to Build On What Was Started This Week

With the Yankees taking the series from the mighty Detroit Tigers comes memories (for me, at least) of that first home stand after the All Star Break: the Yankees swept the Cincinnati Reds and they took three out of four from the Texas Rangers.  However, they then went on to have a mediocre road trip, wiping out all the good feelings the Reds and Rangers induced. This cannot happen...

Huff, Hill could be replaced quickly in Yankees pen

In a somewhat surprising move, the Yankees allowed left-handed reliever Matt Thornton to be taken off revocable waivers Tuesday, and sent him and his $3.5 million due in 2015 to the Washington Nationals after the teams could not work out a deal.I’ve been tough on Thornton all season. Some fell in love with his window-dressed 2.55 ERA in his time with the Yankees, but neglected...

Cashman: Masahiro Tanaka won’t be back before September

Masahiro Tanaka played catch for a second straight day, but he still won’t be back before September, according to general manager Brian Cashman. The right-hander, who is hoping a rehab program allows him to avoid Tommy John surgery, is in just the second day of a throwing program. He is scheduled to play catch again Thursday. “I’m happy the early return on rest and two throwing...
