Cashman to Stay With Yankees
Big news tonight as Brian Cashman has agreed to stay with the Yankees through 2011. This is big, because without Cashman, we would likely have Hank trading away Scranton for Kerry Wood. I suspect Cashman got some assurance that baseball operations would remain under his control, and that he would have free reign to continue building the way he would like. I hope so. The prospects haven't worked out....yet, and the honest truth is that they were rushed, but with Brackman, Montero, and Jackson sitting in the minors I'd like to see how these players get developed. So congratulations to Cashman, and congratulations to Yankee fans everywhere. Now, we can go build the 2009 Yankees.
