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.

You said "everytime"  so now you're cherry picking?  
Had one shaky start in April, other than that, he's been pretty darn good against the Yanks.  How about almost everytime.  Better?

For some strange reason, Scherzer dominates the Yankees every time he faces them and is average against the rest of the league.  Hope the Yanks can change that trend starting next year.

Oh yeah -- Detroit also has 24 million coming off the books (Guillen and Magglio), so they will only be better next year, as the Yankees keep getting older, as Cashman keeps extending players into their 40's.  LOL 
What player's contract did Cashman recently extend into their 40's???

Yeah real bad moves... he gets Granderson from your Tigers for what you guys end up with, Jackson who can't hit anything and Scherzer? Yeah I'd say the DBacks and Yankees won in that trade... Yankees got a MVP canidate and DBacks Cy Young canidate.... we ditch Soriano for ARod and we would have ARod for a shorter cheaper contract (if it was for Cashman) and not the Steinbrenners and they refused to pickup the option which Texas would have to pay the last 2 years on his contract and he would have had extended from 5-7 years (including the 2 year option the Yankees had) which would have been 3-5 years of full contract for the Yankees and 2 years where they got him for half price... CC just signed when the OWNERS said he will opt out, and his signings of Colon and Garcia helped solidify a rotation that was so bad they ended up top 3 in the AL and won the division... worry about the Tigers woes more then the Yankees, Yankees get a solid number 2 which Wilson would be a solid number 2 and as much as he is the best pitcher his value won't sky rocket because a lot of other teams see him as a number 3... Yankees will go after him but not real hard. Better hope that Verlander does what he did again because the Tigers rotation is garbage other then Verlander.
Here is just a couple of names I'll throw out to you:
Carl Pavano, Steve Karsay, Jared Wright, Nick Johnson, Kei Igawa (one of my faves -- 26 million for negotiating rights and a 20 million dollar contract), Nick Johnson, Kyle Farnsworth, ARod (worst contract in ALL of the MLB), Jorge Posada, Randy Johnson, AJ Burnett, Javier Vazquez.

Cashman has an open checkbook to go after anyone in all of baseball, yet can't put together a pitching staff.  I am ecstatic the Yankees aren't going out to get a competent GM.  Imagine what NY would be with a GM that knows what he is doing???  You guys would be unstoppable.  Imagine what the payroll will be when Cano and Granderson sign extensions.  LOL.  They are the two best players on the Yankees and the only two who don't get paid an exhorbitant amount of money.

As far as NY and Arizona being the two teams who benefitted from that trade.  You may want to think again.  Scherzer is the guy who shutdown the Yankees this year, as the Tigers knocked them out of the playoffs again.  Austin Jackson does strike out too much, but hit almost .300 as a rookie and is one of the best defensive CF's in baseball.  He is still really young and he fits what the Tigers need as a CF.   In 2 seasons with Detroit, Scherzer is 27-20.  His first year, he finished with a 3.50 era.  He is also young.

If you look at the Tigers -- other than VMart -- every major contributor on Detroit is 28 or younger.  Verlander, Fister, Scherzer, Porcello, Austin Jackson, Alex Avila, Brennan Boesch, Miguel Cabrera, Jhonny Peralta, etc.  Our pitching staff is also locked up for the next 4 years -- and our #1 prospect will be coming up next year to be the #5 starter (Jacob Turner)

Oh yeah -- Detroit also has 24 million coming off the books (Guillen and Magglio), so they will only be better next year, as the Yankees keep getting older, as Cashman keeps extending players into their 40's.  LOL

So Starblazer, just because the Yanks have a $200 million payroll, the Mets shouldn't be able to win with a $142 million dollar payroll? 

What would you rather have, a $200 million dollar payroll that makes the playoffs every year or a $142 million joke that, year after year, cannot even get to .500?  

Take your head of out of your a$$.  Your team is a ****ing joke.  A laughing stock.  Wilpon is probably the worst owner in sports.  $142 million and can't even field a competitive team.  And under investigation an association with one of the world worst financial criminals. The Mets  LOL.  Pathetic.   

Don't speak dummy.

angry cause your team doesnt have that kind of money huh starblazer?  i have an idea.  why don't you tell us all with a straight face that you would never accept more money to do the same job you have now at a new company because its unfair to your current employer.  then and only then can you rip baseball players and the yankees for making money.

oh whats that your just another angry met/jet fan with major little man syndrome.  what was the last time one of your teams won anying?  the 94 rangers LOL  must be bad being you inderstand all the hatred.    maybe you should focus on your anger on your own scumbag owner and how he's ripped off thousands of people with his buddy madoff.  maybe you should focus on those awful santana and bay deals that cashman didn't make but your GM did.  when the mets were throwing around money at beltran and santana and bay you had no issue with spending.  your team is whats a joke not ours. 

i can tell you really know what your talking about cause really opened the check book for his staff in 2011 when he signed tolo and freddy gar instead of trading away our two best pitching prospects or montero and or austin romine.  hey who do the mets have in the system? LOL jokes on you you fool    

and just for the record i understand its twice as nice with spice but the yankees have never had a 220 mil payroll you padded that by 20 mil and the yankees payroll didn't break 100 mil until 2001 not in 1996 like you say.  you were close but you spiced it up as most yankee haters do. 

kindly go screw yourself now.
