Mary Cashman, Wife Of Yankees GM, Files For Divorce

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The wife of Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has filed divorce papers a day after prosecutors charged a woman with stalking him and extorting money over an extramarital affair.

Mary Cashman filed the paperwork Friday in Stamford, Conn.

Her lawyer didn’t immediately return a phone message Saturday. A spokesman for Brian Cashman says the family wouldn’t have any comment.

On Thursday, prosecutors said 36-year-old Louise Neathway stalked and shook down Brian Cashman, getting him to pay her $6,000 and demanding more by threatening to harm his reputation.

Her lawyers said Cashman had had “an inappropriate relationship” with Neathway, a medical sales worker and single mother of a 14-year-old daughter, and he turned on her when it ended badly.

A person familiar with the family says Cashman and his wife have been separated and living apart for a year. The person asked not to be named because of the private nature of the matter.

Neathway was arraigned on grand larceny, stalking and harassment charges and is being held on $300,000 bond. Her next court date is Tuesday.

    I knew Cashman was bogus. He is a lousy husband and a worse GM for the Yankees. I hope the FINALLY fire him. He stinks!

    lol..this cashman runs his private life as bad as he runs the yankees.

    you think ANYONE will be on his side during this divorce now?

    funny how he only has a job because of the yankees money and funny how he runs to the police to protect only his money. money is more important then morality to this fraud.

      Who cares about his private life? Why are you so happy he is having problems? You ever have problems? As for his record as GM, 4 World Series championships since he’s been GM is the best around. And don’t give me the money stuff – plenty other teams have money – whether they choose to spend it or not. During the 80’s, the Yankees spent plenty of money and no one complained because they did not win. I don’t understand people who hate, just to hate.
