Brian CashmanBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Brian Cashman is staying in New York for at least three more years. Yankees ownership announced Tuesday that it had re-signed its general manager through the 2014 season.

Cashman, 44, has the third-longest tenure among active general managers and is the longest-serving Yankees GM since Ed Barrow, who was in charge of the team from 1920 to 1945.

The Yankees are 1,369-895-2 since Cashman took over the team on Feb. 3, 1998. His teams have appeared in the playoffs in 13 of his 14 seasons as GM with six World Series appearances and four titles.

While critics note "anyone" could win with the Yankees payroll, the Red Sox, Mets and Cubs have proven that's not necessarily true. Cashman is one of the game's best general managers, and he will continue to be so for at least three more years. And it appears there may be very little drama this offseason in the Bronx -- a welcome sight after last year's Derek Jeter soap opera. The team has already signed extensions with Cashman and CC Sabathia, while picking up the options on Robinson Cano and Nick Swisher. Now all that they need is a couple of starting pitchers and everything should be peachy.

Though Yanks didn't win this year, Cash had a great year: Garcia and Colon were brilliant signings; he navigated Jorge's collapse very well; and gave good advice on not signing Soriano (not his fault if the blusterboy Steinbrenners didn't heed it).  He doesn't have a great rotation because (a) Phil Hughes has capped out; (b) AJ is a head case; (c) some moron spit on Cliff Lee's wife; (d) there's nobody out there.

correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Jeter have 3 years left on his contract?  the final year, he will be 40.  also, i believe, ARod has 7 years left on his deal meaning he will be 42 or 43 in the final year of his contract.  jorge posada just played the last year on the contract extension cashman signed him too -- he was 40 this year.
Jeter has 2 guaranteed years left on his deal with the 3rd one being an option i believe.  As previously mentioned, Brian Cashman had nothing to do with ARod's contract extension. Hank and Hal Steinbrenner personally negotiated that deal with Alex, Cashman was ready to let him go play somewhere else until ownership stepped in.  Posada turned 40 this past August so I guess you can say he was in his 40's for the last month and a half of his contract.  

You claimed Cashman keeps extending his players contract's into their 40's.  As of right now, there is one player (Jeter) that potentially could be 40 when their contract is up.   To be fair, I thought that your statement was slightly inaccurate.

Had one shaky start in April, other than that, he's been pretty darn good against the Yanks.  How about almost everytime.  Better?
