Since May 20th of last season, in regular seasons games, including yesterday’s loss, the Mets have gone 83-86. Some are now calling for Mets G.M. Omar Minaya to have his feet held to the fire for the sorry state of Metsdom over the last year.
Could this situation be something that Yankees G.M. Brian Cashman is holding in his back pocket? We know that reports have come up recently that suggest Hank Stein is not thrilled with Cashman’s team building. However, in the past, Big Stein would rather be stuck with something than allow it go to the Mets (where it could possibly haunt him by doing well). Will Hank be the same as his dad here?
If the Mets fire Omar at the end of this season, and if Cashman is a “free agent,” you know that Brian will be in consideration for the Mets job – and it’s probably a spot that Cashman would be very interested in…for all the obvious reasons.
In the end, after this season, Brian Cashman may just get an offer to stay with the Yankees…and one that pays well…and it may be the result of what’s happening over at Shea (rather than results in Yankeeland).
