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.

Yankees, Brian Cashman agree to 3-year extension

YEEEEEES!!!!  The rest of baseball gets at least another three years of inept GM moves by Cashman.  How a guy with an open checkbook can't field a pitching staff worth a damn is humorous -- as are some of the contracts he has signed everyday players too.
COUGH - AROD - COUGH

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.

maybe you should ask the Mets, Red Sox, Cubs and Dodgers your moronic "how a guy with an open checkbook can't field a pitching staff" question.
Even with 200 million his rotation was a joke.

While critics note "anyone" could win with the Yankees payroll, the , and have proven that's not necessarily true
 Another CBS error. None of those come close to the Yankees 220 million at their height. They have continually had a 200 million dollar payroll often having 50-70 million more than the next competitor. That's not even close to those teams who have stretched their budget. The Mets highest payroll was 142 million. That's 80 million less than the Yankees have operated at. The Cubs and Red Sox have been about that high as well. 80 million is 2 teams worth of salary for much of MLB.

Ca$hman has a perfect name for a Yankees ATM. They don't have a GM and haven't had one since Watson who had about a 100 million dollar budget back in 1996. The Yankees throw money at players and when they fail(Soriano, Burnett, Feliciano, Pavano etc), they just reached deeper. That doesn't take acumen, just an ability to sign a check.

What trades has Ca$hman made? Even getting Granderson lost him Kennedy. That's probably his best deal as ATM. The Rodriguez trade was basically a salary dump by Texas. That was more of a FA signing because of the salary owed him that no one other than the Yankees and Red Sox could afford and MLB turned down Boston's deal.

Ca$hman knows is he went anywhere else he'd actually have to work to be effective. He wouldn't have a blank check book and endless resources. With the Yankees, he opens the safe, writes checks and when his moves fail, he blames ownership or another team.

Good job Mike D for proving your idiocy.  If you read up, you'd know Cashman was against the Arod deal as he was with Soriano's deal.  CC is a proven ace who helped win a ring and Cashman's insistance of keeping the farm system in tact is paying off.  

maybe you should ask the Mets, Red Sox, Cubs and Dodgers your moronic "how a guy with an open checkbook can't field a pitching staff" question.

Dolt.

First off, Brian Cashman had nothing to do with ARod's contract.  When ARod opted out in 07, Cashman was ready to let him go somewhere else until the Steinbrenners stepped in and personally negoitiated that absurd contract with ARod.  Secondly, I realize that Cashman has made some bad moves over the years, especially with some of these pitchers, but then again what GM in baseball makes perfect moves every year???  Cashman has also done a decent job rebuilding the Yankee farm system.  I think Jesus Montero is going to be a stud hitter sooner than later and there are some pitchers (Banuelos, Betances) in the Yankee farm system that are going to be called up soon as well.  If all these guys come up and produce like they should, kudos to Brian Cashman for not trading them away for some overrated/overhyped veteran.

This extension and getting CC back plus picking up the options of swish and robbie is a good start to the off season. now get aj's head screwed on right and you do have a good 1-2 at the head of the staff. then come the ifs. Hughes, can get back to where he was pre 2010 all star break. Nova, is he for real and get 15 wins again. can you get another year out of colon or garcia, or is one of the other youngsters able to move forward. cj wilson is not that good of pitcher for the money he will ask for. will arod be healthy. what will become of jorge? can montero be the dh and spot starter behind the plate? it that is the plan, a 3rd catcher will need to be on the roster. who else is leaving? is chavez staying? good reserve for 1b and 3b. nunez has the potential to be the everyday ss when jetes is done there. ss's almost always need some time to get consistent in the majors.
