 I don't think Hal likes making big changes and his earlier comments seemed to be more directed at players stepping up rather than management bearing the most responsibility for poor play. As I've said before, I'm not sure who besides Cash has Hal's ear when it comes to baseball decisions but IMO, there are a number of candidates who scare me. So, while I'm not the biggest Cashman fan, I'm also fearful that alternatives could be much worse. How's that for fence sitting? 




Hal laid the blame for the Yankees poor first half performance on the players. Therefore, they deserve the credit for the turnaround, not Cashman, not Boone. The trades helped, but without the Yankee regulars, bench players, and minor league guys stepping up, it would have mattered little.


A team's management should not be paralyzed in a state of inertia due to being afraid of an alternative GM being worse.  If they thought that, I'd be concerned about their smarts in being able to hire the right personnel across the board in running a MLB team's organization. 


Cashman has been here 23 years - far, far longer than any other MLB GM has been on all other teams. I feel it is time they consider a change, a fresh approach to building future Yankee teams.  




Jim, I brought up the Hal statement because when he made it, I came to the conclusion that both Cashman and Boone were safe. Now that the team is playing better I think it is even a greater liklihood that both are back. 


As far as the GM position being made worse, I didn't mean to imply Hal has that fear, I'm pretty sure he trusts the people offerring him advice or they would be gone. I don't pretend to know who his closest advisors are and if they are any good or not. I wouldn't trust Hal with making a baseball decison without advice from a baseball guy. I have a fear he may be taking advice from Levine, my fear may be irrational , but I have a very strong dislike of Levine and consider him to be a bit of an azz.




Your conclusion that Cashman and Boone were safe I'd concur with. The Yankees wonderful turnaround, especially if they keep playing well for the remainder of this season, probably has cinched that. Boone's contract is up this year, I'm very curious what the Yankees will offer him in his next one, presuming they do so.


I also would not trust Hal with pure baseball decisions, as I don't believe he has sufficient baseball knowledge to make them. Levine has also not come across to me in a good way. Don't see him as a baseball guy as such either.  




The only real baseball guy is Cashman ... that's why his job is secure ... Hal and Levine are businessmen.

Mo, there has to be baseball guys in the Organization besides Cash, Im just not familiar enough with the organization to know who they are and how good they are. I think Damon Oppenheimer (sp) was really highly thought of and I think he might still be in the organization somewhere.

After what Cashman did at the trade deadline, I wouldn't be surprised if they promote him ... then they can bring in some fresh blood.




I've heard the theory about Cashman being promoted before but as well as being GM, he is also a Senior Vice President. I guess a promotion would be to President, a position held by Randy Levine who I personally feel is a POS. I think he is also a favorite of the Steinbrenners so I don't see him going anywhere anytime soon. 



Levine is a PODS...

The criticisms of the the team Cashman put together in the off season are all valid.  And as GM, he is the face of that effort.  Even though he supposedly won substantial additional autonomy some years ago, w still do not know who, besides Hal, actually has active input into the decisions.


Operating under Hal's mandate to stay below the LT he was clearly somewhat financially hamstrung.  Six years, even at "only" $15 per for DJLM was probably a mistake, even for 2 time batting champ.  But we, as fans, don't really know who was available or what other teams weer asking in return.  One thing we do know, there si no way Cashman could have gotten Rizzo or Gallo for low level prospects AND gotten the Rangers and Cubs to pay all of their remaining 2021 salaries during the 2020-21 off season.  Give him an F if you want for the off season, but he gets an A for the trade deadline.


As for Boone, we don't know how many of the decisions, especially on lineups and who to rest and how often are really his to make.  And he deserves props for holding the clubhouse together in the bad times.  But his handling of the pitching, especiallythe bullpen is flat out incompetent and he doesn't seem to learn from his mistakes.  I won't miss him if they do not bring him back.

  Brian Cashman isn't going anywhere becasue of his family ties with the Steinbrenners. He is a competent GM who is better than some, not as good as others. Until he gets rings without Joe Torre and Derek Jeter, it is hard to rate him as an elite executive. His won loss record correlates strongly with the level of Yankee spending.

Well said. IMO before the advent of getting the two basically "free" left handed hitters, and bringing up Allen, and getting Wade a few more AB's due to injury's this team was not as good as even last season's. He negated a lot of his praise with me by messing up the Davis/Allen switch-a-roo. While Allen needing to go down was explained, doesn't change the fact he was in that position and it took to long for the explanation and had many fans scratching their heads.

Hard to believe all Cashman got for "ALL WORLD" Mike Tauchman was Peralta. Just another reason Cash should be firedUndecided

We should do a search for all the posts you made calling it a bad deal and touting up Tauchman

sounded like you just touted getting rizzo & gallo for free. throw odor onto to the list of freebies. in addition to peralta, have to say cortez has worked out pretty well. reserving judgement on heaney but his start against boston was pretty damn good. how do like velazquez. the major in-season stumble was davis.
