    From the Post:

    As for money, Cashman could command $2.5 million a year for four years because The Boss’ list of replacements is super-model thin. The in-house leader is VP of scouting Damon Oppenheimer, who is inexperienced. Steinbrenner likes former Red Sox GM Dan Duquette but that would be a PR disaster.

    Why would Dan Duquette be a “PR disaster”? Because of the Clemens comment? Heck, you can make a case that Duquette built the foundation of that Red Sox team that won the ring. It’s possible that he has some skills that a team like the Yankees can use.

      agreed, Steve, but Duquette is one wacky dude. his tenure in Boston was marked by repeated contretemps with the admittedly rabid press. if the reason for keeping Torre is his ability to deal with both Steinbrenner and the media mob, then that’s precisely why you don’t want Duquette. Anyway, I hear his acting career is going along pretty well.

      Let me just say… no.

      I could not imagine anything that would hasten the decline of the Yankees more rapidly than hiring Duquette as GM.
