After the contentious signing of Rafael Soriano, we’ve been left wondering if we’re seeing the regrowth of a riftin the Yankee organization. Last time, we heard of a New York faction of the organization, headed by GM Brian Cashman butting heads with a Tampa faction, headed up by ownership. The recent turn of events has seen a more public airing of grievances from Cash and, as we all know, Mr. Cashman is in the final season of his contract with the Yankees.
In my time following the Yankees with as much vigor as I do now–pretty much 2006 on–I’ve generally been a big fan of Brian Cashman’s. There are moves with which I probably disagreed, but most of the things he’s done have helped the team, especially in the last few years. Essentially, I’ve had almost no major problems with how Cashman has constructed his team. But after the process that led to the Soriano deal, I’m wondering if 2011 is going to be the last year we see Brian Cashman working for the New York Yankees.
I’m not going to begin speculating as to who could take over for Cashman since I have no idea who’ll want the job (or if it will actually be open), but part of my brain (/heart!) is preparing for a Cashman-less future. I do know, though, that I want the next non-Cashman GM to be like Cashman. What exactly that is I’m not sure I can define. Perhaps I want that for selfish reasons since it’s something I’d be used to. As an attention paying Yankee fan, Cashman is the only GM I’ve ever known and, as I said, I’ve been happy with his performance. I’d like him back for the next few years, but I’ll understand if he wants to leave.
