Cashman close to re-upping

According to a story on MLB.com. I know Yankee fans are split by and large over the job he's done, but I'm thrilled it appears he will be sticking around. What he and Damon Oppenheimer have done to the farm system the last few years has been nothing short of miraculous. As a farm system junkie, I can't ask for more that what they've accomplished. I'm also very pleased with the inroads he's made in Latin America, and other parts of the world. I look forward to see the direction he takes this team with the extra $85M or so that comes off the books after this season. Bottom line is the Yankees' future is extremely bright, and Brian Cashman deserves a lot of the credit for that. Plus, he also seems to be very good at keeping Hank's bluster as bluster, and not action. For that alone, I'd like to see him stick around.

I heard this on the local news last night and to tell you the truth I am very pleased. Brian Cashman has done a fantastic job building the farm system and by and large he's done well as GM. There have been some obvious mistakes but if you look at the overall picture, it's a bright one for the New York Yankees. Despite, what certain RSN members on here state.

Thanks for the update NyNasty...I don't get to monitor that side of baseball too much as it is all  I can do to check sports center at the end of the day to see how the Yanks did!

I appreciate the update and I agree...Cashman is good for the team.  With a new manager and thing 1 & thing 2 taking over for Georgie, he really is the most experienced man in the organization right now.  Getting rid of him would be a disaster.

Perhaps it is Cashman who should step up and take over the leadership role for the next year or two.  No players or other administration is doing it.

I didn't realize what he was doing in Latin America etc...interesting.
