This past offseason Brian Cashman, the New York Yankees’ General Manager, opted not to throw millions at the likes of Max Scherzer and Hanley Ramirez. Instead, Cashman decided to make a flurry of smaller moves that have proved to pay big dividends for the Wild Card-leading New York Yankees. Brian Cashman went out and traded RHP Shane Greene in a three-way trade to acquire Didi...

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...

Brian Cashman told Derek Jeter in 2010 he preferred Troy Tulowitzki

Long before Derek Jeter retired after the 2014 MLB season, he was in a heated contract dispute with the New York Yankees. At the time, team GM Brian Cashman was playing hardball, not wanting to pay big money to a declining star with limited defensive range. He spared no emotions during the negotiations and even told the Yankees captain that he would rather have Troy Tulowitzki at...

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...

Double shocker: Yankees beat the Blue Jays, and the "unmarketable" A-Rod is getting a special day!

A-Rod and CC hug it out after Alex's 3000th hit.Well, that was a pretty exciting -- and exhausting -- day in Yankeeland! First, even I, the author of "The Redemption of A-Rod," was positively stunned when I heard that the Yankees were going to honor Alex Rodriguez with a special day for his 3000th hit. I don't seem to remember even Derek Jeter getting such a day for his own 3000th...

Are the New York Yankees in trouble?

The New York Yankees have come a long way from being the run away favorite to win the American League East. The Yankees just last month were standing atop the AL East comfortably and now they are only a half game atop the division. Before the trade deadline, the Yankees possessed a 6.5 game lead over the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles. Ever since the trade deadline, July...

Has the Yankees' refusal to trade prospects exposed a rift in the fabric of the Yankiverse?

At River Ave, the prolific, thoughtful, and generally lucid Mike Axisa is not happy. He says Brian Cashman blew it.I’m in the camp that thinks the Yankees have a wonderful opportunity in front of them — seriously, can you expect Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez to hit like this again next year? — and they should have been willing to trade a top or prospect or two to bolster...

A big shoe drops today, and the mystery of Dustin Ackley will be explained

Something will happen today. It must happen. I'm sort of dreading it. Today, we will learn why, why, why the Yankees sandbagged themselves into a corner in their obsessive quest for somebody named Dustin Ackley.  I spent last night trying to figure it out. Never did. Ackley's nickname should be "The Sphinx." His presence as a Yankee - if he remains one after today - is a dark...

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 […]

Hot Yankees Need To Avoid Letdown on 10 Game Trip

It's been the story of the Yankees season so far. Just when they seem to be on a roll, something happens. Thursday the Yankees loaded the bases with none out in the bottom of the first and the next two hitters failed to advance the runners. It looked as if something was about to happen.    But Chase Headley, who has struggled all season at the plate and in the field, delivered...

With a five-game lead in the loss column, the Yankees now have only injuries to fear

This is Buck Is Stuck Week in the AL East, a series where the Yankees can - on paper, at least - turn the rest of the O's season into a quest for that horrible, terrible, wretched one-game Wild Card birth. If we split the next two, Baltimore leaves NY five down in the loss column. If we sweep them - ahhh, mama - they leave seven back... with only eight games remaining against us...

Despite Brendan Ryan's Tuesday night performance, I still don’t think he’s the team's best option.Ryan produced a 2-out double that scored Didi Gregorius from 1B, in what proved to be the winning run in the Yankees 3-2 win over division rival Baltimore.Brian Cashman, who has to be feeling vindicated given the results of the game, obviously disagrees, because...
