Yankees Want To Bring Brian Cashman Back

Yankees president Randy Levine told Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork.com that he wants general manager Brian Cashman to continue in his current role after the season, when Cashman’s contract expires. It’s the strongest indication yet that one of the game’s longest-tenured GMs is going nowhere.

"Clearly, we want him back," Levine said.

Though Cashman’s three-year deal is mere weeks away from expiring, it’s Yankee policy to wait until the offseason before discussing new deals. Cashman says he has a great relationship with ownership and confirmed that he’s interested in returning to New York, where he has been the GM since 1998.

“They know that I would like to come back and we have a good working relationship, but we'll deal with that stuff on another day," he said.

Cashman told Ian O'Connor of ESPNNewYork.com last week that there’s no better place for him than New York, while acknowledging that his job has its shortcomings. The Cubs don’t currently have a GM and though they’ve been linked to Cashman, it appears that they’ll have to search elsewhere.

The Yankees have made the playoffs in 13 of the 14 seasons that Cashman has been their GM, winning four World Series titles. They are 97-62 this season with three regular season games to play. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported earlier in the month that the Yankees and Cashman have mutual interest in a new deal.

    There’s the most mind blowing news of the day. Next we’ll hear St Louis wants to resign Pujols. Oh wait…..

  2. East Coast Bias 4 years ago

    Hopefully Cashman wants to come back. He’s proved how valuable he is to this and any other franchise.

    ask them for the deal they made you give a-rod

      Can he go over his own head?

    • MikhelB 4 years ago

      Alex Rodríguez before the NYY:
      0.308 AVG, 34 HR, 99 RBI, 0.382 OBP, 0.581 SLG, 0.273 ISO

      Since he joined the NYY:
      0.295 AVG, 36 HR, 113 RBI, 0.390 OBP, 0.550 SLG, 0.256 ISO

      Since his new contract at the end of 2007:
      0.284 AVG, 28 HR, 98 RBI, 0.374 OBP, 0.522 SLG, 0.238 ISO

      So… since 2008 he’s basically been like another famous PED user: David Ortíz, whose stat line is:
      0.270 AVG, 28 HR, 96 RBI, 0.366 OBP, 0.514 SLG, 0.243 ISO

    The cubs will do to the yankees what the yankees did to the redsox in the carl crawford contract last winter, as they will drive cashmans price up and if the yanks dont bite the cubs steal him from the yanks.

    • East Coast Bias 4 years ago

      Yes, hit them where it hurts. Drive up his price from about 2m a year to a whopping 2.3m a year!!! No way the Yankees can afford that.

      PS: Carl Crawford literally makes ten times as much as Cashman does.

      • YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

        Maybe they’ll find a way to unload Big Z and up the offer to $2.5 mil?

      • gunsnascar 4 years ago

        whatever guys his pay will definitly increase if the cubs start talking with him. His price wont get too outrageous for the yanks to afford him and I dont expect him to beeline to the cubs but the FACT that the cubs have the opening and the FACT that cashman has been linked to them will increase his annual sallery all it will take is a couple of conversations.
         Personally I think he is a good GM but how hard could being a GM for the yankees be with a 200+ million payroll and the winning reputation that they have because of that payroll.
        Eastcoast I dont expect his sallery to double but with some competition for his services it will increase but not as much as crawfords contract went up but it will cost the yanks more money for sure.
        beisbolista way to blow my words outta proportion.

        • MikhelB 4 years ago

          I don’t see how the Cubs could be able to offer a GM 2 million dollars… plus, yeah, he has a 200+ million payroll, yet this past offseason his biggest (and basically only moves) were for players nobody seemed to want, like Colón and García, and there you have it. Soriano was the BIG acquisition and he spent so much time in the DL that he barely was a factor in the Yankees success this year. The other BIG signing, or re-signing was Jeter and he’s hitting 0.340+ since he came back from the DL in July.

    • YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

      Yeah because Cash probably isn’t already one of the highest paid GM and is just begging to inherent a smoothly operating organization like the Cubs (no offense to Cubbie fans). 

      • gunsnascar 4 years ago

        cashman would be a good person to help smooth out that orginization ,we all know that they need all the help that they can get in that and many other departments.

        You yanks fans get bitter much about someone else interested in your GM…..GEEZ
        Its not like they are trying to steal CC from you oh wait they just may try.

    • hardcoreforhardcore 4 years ago

      I’m so sure Cashman will be chomping at the bit to run from a franchise where he’s overseen 4 world series wins to go clean up Jim Hendry’s mess.

  5. NYPOTENCE 4 years ago

    I was hoping Cash would be promoted to a higher job, just to take a look at Oppe’s attack strategy.

  6. Vmmercan 4 years ago

    Why the A-Rod contract talk? Cash didn’t negotiate that, it was purely Steinbrenners, just like Soriano.

  7. SixAces 4 years ago

    Too bad they can’t just get rid of Levine…

  8. slider32 4 years ago

    Cash did a great job molding this team, especially the pitching this year. He will get a new deal with the Yanks and resign CC and sign CJ Wilson.

  9. notsureifsrs 4 years ago

    yes, that other guy is the one that sounds bitter

  10. YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

    You just couldn’t avoid the temptation, could you?

    PS-I hate Scott Proctor. Putting him in in yesterday’s game was like throwing in the towel and saying “Enough….we just want to rest our players”.

  11. Redsoxn8tion 4 years ago

    Oh loyal Yankees fans, how you’ve so figured me out, ha ha ha. I was just saying that obviously the Yankees want Cashman back. Nice try with the bitterness talk though.

  12. Tko11 4 years ago

    “Coattails of Hector Noesi, Greg Golson, and Ramiro Pena” lol…relax buddy

  13. stl_cards16 4 years ago

    Well at least you know how to have a rational conversation about the topic at hand.

  14. Tko11 4 years ago

    A couple months ago the Yankees were complaining about Cashman. And if you really believe that Cashman “tricked” the Sox and didnt really want Crawford you must be delusional. Ohh yea by the way did you forget about Arod and his contract? Good job yankees…the guy cannot even move anymore. Gotta love that.

    guaranteed the local red sox fan took this kid’s chocolate milk during recess

  16. East Coast Bias 4 years ago

    I knew that was going to happen once Proctor was called in.

  17. Guest 4 years ago

    The sheer fact that he was able to book one out was appalling in itself. 

    And to everyone else; Cashman is the man and the Yankees would be very fortunate to have him stay. He has spent the better part of the last decade building a deep farm and just when it could pay some of its biggest dividends (bigger than Cano if you can believe that) he leaves for somewhere else? No chance. 

    Haven’t written in a while but perhaps we could pen a discussion real soon about how much the Yankee’s overhype their prospects and how “they’re not worth it.” Perhaps get a little input from Ian Kennedy on the subject too.

    As opposed to the bosox’s thirdbas… oh wait, Youkilis can barely move…
