Brian Cashman and the Yankees have agreed on a three-year deal that will keep him with the team through the 2011 season as their General Manager.
For this Yankees fan, this news is like a punch right to the gut.
The Hank-Half of the Brothers Stein is always quick to point out that there have been “mistakes” made in Yankeeland in the last five to seven years that need to be “fixed.”
Well, the Yankees just had a chance to “fix” one of those biggest “mistakes” – but, they really screwed the pooch with this call…giving Cashman three more years to prove that he’s one of the worst talent evaluators in the big leagues.
On the bright side, I suspect that Cashman will never make it to that third year of this deal. So, in the end, this will probably only be two more years of having to endure “Cecil Turtle In Charge.”
