    From the San Fran Chronicle:

    Scott Eyre will be wooed elsewhere: The Giants already made Eyre a multiyear offer, but relievers (especially effective lefties) will be a hot commodity for big-market teams, including the Yankees and Red Sox, who easily could outbid the Giants, a team that doesn’t generally re-sign its guys once they become free agents.

    34-years-old. Lefty middle reliever. Over his career, been just average. Became somewhat effective once he moved to the NL and a pitchers park home field. Had a career year last year in his walk season.

    Oh, this has Yankees signing written all over it.

      It sure does. As happy as I was that Cashman decided to stay (the alternative of Damon Oppenheimer was not particularly appealing), this is why I think he’s a buffoon. Never learns from mistakes.

      His friends in the media and George-haters everywhere will just chalk it up to Tampa, I’m sure, if Scott Eyre goes the way of Felix Heredia and Jay Witasik. Since Connors isn’t invited to the meetings this week, they’ll have to pin this one on Bill Emslie. I also like Cashman but by re-upping for another 3 years, he’s just lost his cover. The excuse of “he made me do it” won’t wash.

      I wanted to point out that this is the speculation of an SF Chronicle writer. It might have basis in reality, and it might not. Should Sox fans be considering Theo a buffoon because this report speculates that he’s also interested in Eyre?

      In Cashman’s interview with Mike and the Angry Puppy, he was tactful. He said that the front office, everyone involved, was responsible for recent trade and signing failures. In fact, rather than shirk responsibility, his new set-up assumes him as the point man on all baseball decisions. He was the one who proposed this set-up. He’s not seeking excuses for any future failure.
