Via Ken Rosenthal -
Even some of [Brian] Cashman’s friends in the industry think he might be ready to bolt. He started with the Yankees in 1986 and became GM in 1998, but he has turned increasingly blunt and outspoken in recent months, as if job security is the least of his concerns.
Then again, Cashman actually seemed more disenchanted in 2008, the last time he was in the final year of his contract. He signed a new deal then after gaining more control, and perhaps he will centralize his authority again.
Is it just me, or, does anyone else think part of Cashman’s fate sits with how the Yankees pitching does in August, September and October?
