Cashman Re-Ups

Brian Cashman said he still has a job to do. He's got three years to do it. The Yankees general manager signed a new, three year contract that will keep as the head honcho through 2011.
"I know I've said it before, but it's an incredible opportunity and honor to hold the title of general manager for the New York Yankees," Cashman said. "With it comes a great responsibility to ownership, the people who wear the uniform and our fan base. I've got a job to finish here. That's the bottom line."
The Steinbrenner boys were happy to have Cashman back in the fold.

"Before we could move forward as an organization this offseason, we needed to come to a resolution on the person who would hold the important position of general manager and allow us to make another run at a 27th world championship," Hal and Hank Steinbrenner said in a joint statement released through the team.

"We are thrilled that Brian has accepted to renew his commitment to this organization for at least three more years."

  1. Oh! Great, now I just have to brace myself for another "No Playoffs for the Yankees" season.
    Take a good look at the Yankees' system. There are no budding aces except Joba, whose shoulder they managed to messed up. There are no budding RBI machines like Josh Hamilton and Ryan Braun.
    So many people speak high about Casnman's player development route, but sadly the truth is this man and his team do not have the ability to scout and develop.
    This team needs to get rid of the Steinbrenners brothers.
