BRIAN CASHMAN NEWS

What Does It Take?

I have said this all year.  I have said it for 2, maybe 3 years, actually.The problem with the Yankees is Brian Cashman.  Get rid of him.  Bring in a talent.  Clean house.And begin anew.Cashman has only one strategy and it consists of the following tactics:1.  Have idiots in charge of the draft.  Waste picks by trading them, or focusing on family friends like Mariano's...

For the 20th time this year, the Yankee season is over

Remember the great Torre teams? How every night, a new guy stepped up and delivered a key hit, a shutdown inning, or a great play in the field?Girardi's Yankees are the team that always, somehow, springs a new leak.Last night, it was David Robertson, who was just starting to be appreciated. But the loss wasn't his fault. If Robby had pitched a perfect ninth, would it have...

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...

Loss of Thornton leaves a temporary hole in the bullpen

Might not be able to tell, but Yankees bullpen just became a tad bit weaker with the loss of lefty specialist Matt Thornton. Thornton was put on revocable waivers and was subsequently claimed by the Washington Nationals yesterday, who have taken on his contract. Seems strange that the Yankees were concerned about such a small salary dump, Thornton was due just around $4.5 million...

Tough Extra Innings Loss Tops Eventful Day for Yankees

Happy Wednesday, everyone.  The halfway point of the week has come after some interesting developments in Yankees Universe, the last one being a tough 12-inning loss to the Detroit Tigers.  The Yankees have two more games in which to try for a split of the series, and everyone is hoping they can win by a margin bigger than two runs or less.  But, again, that wasn't the only...

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...

Tanaka to play catch for first time since partially tearing elbow ligament

Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka will play catch Monday for the first time since suffering a partially torn elbow ligament last month, GM Brian Cashman confirmed to George King of the New York Post. He was evaluated Friday and given the thumbs up to test the elbow. Tanaka, 25, suffered the ligament tear the week before the All-Star break. He was examined by three doctors and...

The Year of Enuciating Dangerously: Yangervis, Zelous and now Esmil?

Last night's star, courtesy of the Brian Cashman Recylcing Scrap Yard, was a mysterious and melodious figure named "Esmil Rogers." He threw three scoreless innings against the mighty Redsocks and somehow converted a morbid Yankee defeat into - (HYPERBOLE ALERT... HYPERBOLE ALERT...) - a season-saving victory.In the name of Edwar Ramirez, it's time to recognize the...

The Descent Begins In Earnest. Do Not Read This. It Is long, Insightful and Painful.

Duque says, "we dodged a bullet," when Cliff Lee turned up lame.  I disagree.  We tried to make that deal with the same enthusiasm and foresight the Yankees exhibited in using a top draft pick on Andy Brackman, knowing he was headed for career ending surgery.  We tried to sign Cliff Lee utilizing the same planning and keen insight it took Brian Cashman to use a top draft...

Cashman Comes Out of Trade Season With an “A”

On a day where Jon Lester traded a Boston Red Sox jersey for an Oakland Athletics jersey, and David Price traded a Tampa Bay Rays jersey for a Detroit Tigers jersey, one of the biggest winners was not Oakland or Detroit, but instead the quiet New York Yankees, and Brian Cashman who acquired Stephen Drew, […]

Cashman improves Yankees at deadline

Give credit where credit is due; New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman made his team better without giving up highly touted prospects this July. The Yankees have a long hill to climb, as the rotation was not addressed, but they certainly look a bit more solid as the calendar turns to August.As the clock began to wind down Thursday, it looked as though the Yankees might not...

Yankees Improve Slightly During Historic Day In Trade Deadline History

After one of the biggest days in trade deadline history, during which several teams improved vastly, the New York Yankees improved only slightly.  And that's okay.If you were waiting for Brian Cashman to cast his net far and wide to bring in the best of the best, you haven't been paying attention to what they have or, more accurately, haven't been doing with their farm...

Deep Thoughts by Brian Cashman

"It is a unique set of circumstances," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said of making a trade with the Red Sox.  "One of our two teams has to be in the playoff mode, in my opinion, and the other has to be rebuilding to some degree."

Notes on Pineda, Roster Moves and Refsynder

(Photo by Tom Szczerbowski, Getty Images) With all the moves made yesterday a few tidbits of news went unnoticed. First off GM Brian Cashman feels optimistic about the return of Michael Pineda. It was announced earlier this week that Pineda will start his final rehab assignment this weekend, but there was some speculation about where he would go. Via Bryan Hoch, Cashman said Pineda...

Trade Deadline: Yankees Last Minute Rundown

This year the Yankees have been connected to some of the usual big names, along with some very under the radar guys. I have no doubt that general manager Brian Cashman will make at least one move at some point today, the obvious need being a right-handed power bat that ideally...

Brian Cashman has said that he has “more work to do” in preparing the Yankees’ roster for a playoff run, and if the general manager is able to cross the finish line on anything, there could be new faces in the clubhouse on Friday at Fenway Park.

As we’ve seen so far there really isn’t a juicy market of players this season, again thanks to the addition of the second wild card spot. It’s probably something we can look forward to seeing every...

Yankeetorial: Two excruciating defeats lead the Yankees into "Mortgage the Future" Week

This weekend, the Redsocks traded the ever-crumbling Jake Peavy for two solid pitching prospects, and there's not a Boston frat-boy in beer pong captivity who doesn't expect his team to rise next year and crush the AL East. Why wouldn't they think such crap? Their farm system produces, and they supplement it holding garage sales. It's not rocket science. It's...
