You know, 2014 is the last year of Brian Cashman’s contract.
If the Yankees don’t finish in first this year – which is very probable – that would make it 5 times in the last 8 years where Brian Cashman’s Yankees failed to win the division. Do we need any more evidence that the Yankees current G.M., when given total control over the team, doesn’t have what it takes to field a first-place team?
Would another season, this year, like the one they had in 2013, bring cause for the team to finally consider someone else for G.M.?
Personally, I doubt it.
Cashman, Randy Levine and Lonn Trost are all in bed together. They protect each other. And, it’s going to be tough to get any of them out of there as long as the Steinbrenner family owns the team.
And, that’s a shame.
