I am a little surprised - I thought a lot of people in the front office and coaching staff were ready to jump ship and try something else, having grown a little tired at the Yankee mystique. And Cashman has been the goat for most of the year. Maybe George really has gone soft.

appropriate that the Yanks GM is Cash-man.

I don't really see why people think Cashman is such a great GM. I could overpay for personell that are in their twilight years.

15yroldkid" it lists the new york fuckers, er, yankees Do you eat with that mouth, youngster? Does your mommy know you use that kind of language? You got your World Series, and that means you no longer get to play the Sour Grapes card, so give it a rest.

i'm very, very happy he signed. I thought a lot of people in the front office and coaching staff were ready to jump ship and try something else, having grown a little tired at the Yankee mystique. i guess when you grow up in the organization you don't really tire of it. also, i'm inclined to believe Cashman when he says it wasn't about the money. he knows what he's worth and what he could've gotten somewhere else. if he didn't think that the situation would improve he would've walked. i think part of why Cashman is coming back is that while he is the face of the front office and will have to answer for whatever moves are made (good or bad), there is a greater assurance that those moves will be what he agrees with, not just what Tampa wants to do. (sure, not every move he has made or will make will work out as planned, but i trust his instincts more than say, Billy Connors.) he was taking the hits for signings that he really didn't agree with. now, everything is supposed to be filtered through Cashman. he's not naive to think that things will be perfect, but it seems that the split faction situation will be better. just because a team has a $200MM payroll doesn't mean it was spent wisely. i think now, with Cashman in charge, they can (and will) begin to cut that number down and make some smarter decisions.

Perhaps I've been out of the loop, but I didn't know payrolls could exaggerate.

The salary curve for Baseball GMs describes a hyperbole.
