You're  entitled to your opinion, but I'll  go by the opinion of most baseball experts who consider him one of the best. Funny  how some fans dwell on his mistakes , which all GM's make, but sweep all his good accomplishments under the carpet .

I totally agree. Cashman is totally overrated. I keep saying he must be Blackmailing the Steinbrenner family because he's done nothing in the last 10 years to impress me. He's the reason for Boston winning the World Series in 2004. Cashman chose to trade for a "cheaper, younger and controllable" pitcher like Javier Vazquez instead of trading for Curt Schilling. Long story short, if the Red Sox don't get Schilling, they don't win the World Series in 2004. Who knows? Maybe, they may not win in it 2007 either. Boston has had 3 general managers win the WS in that span. 


This year, he could've signed Corbin or Morton and still has a chance to sign Dallas Keuchel. Why hasn't he because of the Stupid Luxury Tax. What was more important to sign a backup infielder and middle reliever or starting pitching? Tampa has better starting pitching. I hope Cashman's happy now because by Mid Season the Yankees will be trailing the Red Sox by 10 games. Then, he'll be desperate to trade for a starting pitcher when he could've signed one before that. I don't get him. Whenever he comes on the Mike Francesa Show, he sounds too nerdy, spewing Sabermetrics and like all he's trying to do is build for the future. My prediction is that if the Yankees don't a World Series in the next two years, he'll be gone.

Not sure is German or Loaisaga is the answer. Cashman's going to lose a chance to get another starting pitcher if he keeps waiting.

Revisionist history, and on both sides. The D'backs asked the Yanks for a MUCH higher price for Schilling than they did the Red Sox because George stole David Wells from them two years before after Wells had verbally agreed to sign with the D'backs. Cashman couldn't publicly criticize/blame George, but had to give some plausible reason why he traded for Vazquez and not Schilling. 2004 was not 2019; the Yanks under George NEVER worried about "cheaper and controllable". The last big payroll increases were from 2003 to 2004, and then again from 2004 to 2005. The Yanks in fact  tried to get Schilling BEFORE he got traded to the Sox, and Boston got him two weeks BEFORE the Yanks turned around and traded with the Expos for Vazquez.

The Stupid Luxury Tax is Hal's rule, not Cashman's. Cashman might agree with it, or he might not. It doesn't matter; his hands were tied on Corbin as they were on Harper and Machado. In the same way, his hands are still tied with respect to Keuchel. In this offseason, they re-signed Happ, re-signed CC and traded for Paxton. That's three pitchers. If they're desperate for a starter at mid-season, it'll be because of the injuries on the staff, because Montgomery isn't ready yet (coming back from another injury), and because not one of the three young guys comes through.

Right now Keuchel is asking for too many years, Ca$hman is not going to sign a pitcher that is declining in talent and getting older while doing so ... I don't know if Ca$hman/Yankees are as desperate for another starter as some fans, but I don't think he's going to sign anyone to a deal more than one or two years, maybe only one with a second year option ??? 


 In the first place, Yankees know more about the injury of Severino's shoulder than we do, if it's more serious than has been reported they might look to make a move, but so far an issue with tightness in the rotor cuff area is not all that alarming ??

I don't thinks he's a bad GM he's had his ups and downs like all GMs.  But I truly believe that Yankees could use some change as you said it's been 20 years.  A change here would be nice and I'm sure the next guy that steps in builds on Cash.  Right now Cash is just building on his own if you know what I mean.

I agree Cashman has not impressed with building a rotation. Sabathia was the highlight of his starting pitcher pickups, IMO and he was pretty much a no brainer. Hopefully, Happ and Paxton perform.




You think Sabbathia > Paxton? 




 Just an observation....Sabathia's WAR in '18 was 2.3, Paxton's a 2.9.
