Brian Cashman’s contract as G.M. of the Yankees is up after this season. Should the Yankees not bring him back, why not consider Willie Randolph as his replacement?
Randolph had a near Hall of Fame career as a player. He’s also been a coach and a manager at the Major League level. Clearly, he knows the game. And, during the 1993 season, Willie Randolph served as Assistant General Manager of the Yankees – so, he’s got some front office experience. He also knows New York and is not going to melt in front of the media.
“Willow” is more more like Stick Michael and Bob Watson – who were the Yankees G.M.’s before Cashman.
Put it this way: Looking at Cashman’s track record over the last decade, could Randolph do any worse?
