If old-time thinkers still exist in our local franchises, they had best change quickly or get out. This is how today’s postseason is set up. One need not be the best, just good enough.
The former Mets GM, currently serving as San Diego’s senior VP of baseball operations, could reportedly be given a job under GM Brian Cashman.
Cashman has been New York’s GM since 1998, when the Yankees won the World Series in his first season. He has built three more championship teams, most recently in 2009.
Despite the Yankees missing the playoffs for consecutive seasons for the first time since 1992-93, the organization and general manager Brian Cashman are working on a new deal, according to a report.
The Yankees begin life without Derek Jeter this week, facing a future full of holes in an offense already among the American League’s worst.
“The bottom line, to just keep it simple, is we’ve just got to win games,” said Yankees general manager Brian Cashman. Picking up two on Friday would be a nice start.
It looks like it might be the status quo for the Yankees next season. As far as general manager Brian Cashman’s job goes, it appears the Steinbrenners will try to bring him back in 2015.
Brandon McCarthy, Martin Prado and Chase Headley have given the Yankees a real shot in the arm at a time when they really needed it.
And if you need more proof that the Yankees’ ship is tanking, a Steinbrenner spouted off on Wednesday. Well, to the extent that the way more laconic Hal does these days.
Steinbrenner said he will wait until after the season to turn his attention to a new deal for Cashman, whose contract is expiring. Cashman has been the Yankees’ general manager since 1998.
Sounding much like his late father, Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner says his team’s offense has to snap out of its funk. A-Rod in the lineup would be nice right about now.
It was not quite said with his father’s famed intensity, but the message was the same. A Steinbrenner is not happy with the Yankees.
Now that the charmed quartet is officially gone once Derek Jeter retires this fall, we are seeing the sad remnants of Cashman’s shortcomings.
The job he’s doing in his seventh year is perhaps the best of his career. Joe Girardi has managed to keep this undermanned team on the edge of contention, with an assist from his GM.
Will the Yanks shake things up? Maybe, but don’t expect a blockbuster. So far, GM Brian Cashman — no stranger to wheeling and dealing — hasn’t been linked to anyone of the big-splash variety.
