It doesn't matter who's the GM as long as Hal and Levine are here. They set policy, not the GM. What they say goes, and neither are baseball guys. That's the problem in a nutshell. They have non-baseball guys making baseball decisions. Cashman or any other GM does not have last say in it. 





I think that you got it 100% Big.

And yet as someone remarked in an article or blog copied by Big Guy the other day, Cashman knows all this by now, surely, and so his signing for another three years puts all the onus on him to make this team sparkle and get younger doing it from here on out. Period.




  If Cashman cannot produce a winning team as long as Steinbrenner owns the franchise, wouldn't it make sense to change GMs ?

This is no disrespect to women in sports. But women are getting a pass on TV, and many don't have a clue as to what they are talking about. Many wouldn't know the difference between a foul line in baseball, a blue line in hockey or a clothes line.

 Seems today all you need to be is a 20 yr old with  blonde hair, be nice looking, be able to read a tele prompter, along with being able to repeat what the producer is whispering in your ear. Just check out the MLB, NHL, and NFL channels and you will see what I am talking about. There they are as the Anchor women in charge with ex players and coaches and asking them questions they properly could never answer. Sorry, I don't want to be disrespectful, but I am telling  you like it is.

 I can go back to one of the first Anchor Women for Fox Sports, Jeannie Zelasko. She was an actress, and became an over night Anchor Women for Fox Sports and Saturday Baseball. What a joke. You know what she is doing now? She is on the TV Show "Judge Joe Brown" as a commentator.

 I remember when the Yankees were playing a playoff game at Yankee Stadium during Jeannie's time and there was this young Blonde in short hair working for Fox, and in between innings, she was out side the Stadium. The Yankees were losing 2 Zip, and there she is with her microphone, and she say's. "Well here we are outside Yankee Stadium and the Yankees are losing 2 to Oh"

 I said to the TV, "2 To Oh" are you kidding me. Then she ends it off by saying.

 "Well lets get back to the game and hope the Yankees can get 2 points" Yes you heard that right Yankee Fans, "2 points"

 Now I assume when you are talking about Kim as a GM, you are talking about KIm Jones? Correct me If I am wrong. But if you are, you have to be kidding me. Do you remember when she was with the Yankees, all the dumb childish questions she would ask. If you listened closely you could tell Jeter really didn't have much use for her. She would ask stupid questions, and I remember Jeter saying, "There You Go Again Kim" and then look to someone else to ask a question.

 Now I don't know who you are talking about when it comes to NG.

 But your really have to pay your dues to become a GM in any sport, and you have to really know the game, and the business side of if and you have to be in that sport for quite some time and pay your dues. Taking a journalist class or a communications major, does not qualify you for a GM's Job.

 Like another poster said, doesn't matter who you are, what you are, you have to be qualified. And I agree with that. So give me the qualifications for Kim? Or NG, who ever they are.

You may want to actually look things up. Ng has been involved in baseball at an executive level since 1995. She was an assistant G.M. for the Yankees for 3 years starting in 1998 before moving to the Dodgers at the same position. She is now working as the senior vice president for baseball operations in the league office of major league baseball.

What exactly does "his signing for another three years" have anything to do with Cashman not having the power to do what needs to be done?

I didn't say he didn't have the "power." I believe he does, and is/was responsible for the present team as much as the maligned few (notably Levine) that others on this board blame for the present poor state of the team. I'm addressing those who want to "apologize" for Cashman: from here on out, he should know the score, in case anyone wants to excuse him for not having the "power."

 Do you think the Yankees signed Travis Hafner, traded for Vernon Wells or brought in Brian Roberts to sell tickets ?

Bottom line is that Cashman is the GM, Yankees did not make the playoffs with the players Cashman went out and got, and gave to the Mgr. and it seems when ever they Yankees have a bad season since Cashman has been the GM, he is never made accountable.

As a matter of fact it's just the opposite, he gets rewarded. And I find that it makes me wonder and shake my head.

So as I said before he gets rewarded for a terrible season, and uses the hitting and first base coach as his scape goats.

I understand the Yankees had some injuries throughout the season, but that's no excuse for giving the GM a pass.
