    Brian Cashman


    IMO; he has proven during his entire tenure that he suffers from financial erectile dysfunction (sorry, but I just heard a Cialis commercial); but the way he's scrounged the scrap heap for pitchers recently might be his best work to date.

    Posted by nhsteven[/QUOTE]Morning Steven, i agree, while i haven't always been pleased with some of his moves, and his often silly justifications for them, i think he's made strides making the team better without unloading prospects, given the stage he does it on, right or wrong he's going to be judged on a different standard no doubt he knows that..of course in certain circles he won't get a fair shake of any kind..maybe that's true of any GM, but for an organization that's in the business of win, win , win..the job takes on a new dynamic...

    Re: Brian Cashman

    There's a long list of pitchers he signed to huge contracts that just flat out stunk - Igawa, Wright, Farnsworth, Pavano, Vazquez I & II, Clemens II, Weaver, Contreras, Wright, Brown, Burnett, Gordon, Karsay, Loaiza, and so on.  A list this long boggles the mind. Then there was the Aceves release, handling of Wang's injury, & Joba rules & roles fiascos. However, this yr's another story.

    As far as his 2011 performance is concerned, I think that will be judged as always by the final results. 

    I don't know all the details on the Aceves situation but at the moment that seems like a gift for the Red Sox.

    At the end of day the Yankees do what it takes to keep being successful.  One year out of the playoffs since 1995, pretty hard to argue with that.

    Cashman cannot take all the credit, nor can he take all the blame.  Some signings and some releases were the result of the Steinbrenner family interjecting their will.

    Re: Brian Cashman

    Cashman lacks vision and is not a true talent evaluator.  Most GM's are proven talent evaluators by trade and know how to spot a talent in the rough.  Id like to see how he would do with the TB's or KC's payroll. 

    Im not saying Theo is the end all be all of evaluators but he is known for being able to find talent and allow his staff to do what they do best.  You dont see the Sox brass interjecting like the Steinbrenners do.  Owners know money, not talent.

    This could be Cashmans last year with NY, but he will find work almost the day after he is let go.  When grading GM's I would say Theo is in the top five or six and Cashman is just about 10-15ish.

         Cashman is a busy man of late. Rest assured that he's trying to line up a deal for a front line starting pitcher.

    There have been some questionable signings nhs, but thats true for most teams..I think there were a bit more due to the Stienbrenners influence and unlimited finances, like this year with Soriano..I believe there were more of those kind of deals then we know..Not saying hes without fault, just sayin he shouldnt take the full blame..If he is to be leaving at years end, I dont think it would take him too long to find work..

    Cashman does a good job in a very difficult place to work. But Theo has been the better GM, like the job he has done acquiring draft picks and restocking the RS roster year in and year out with young talent. Give him a great deal of credit having 4 of the top 40 draft picks this year and being able to get Agon/Crawford/Wheeler to replace players who were allowed to walk Martinez/Beltre and receive picks. Theo has also done a great job over the years of picking up discarded players who have had much success w/ Red Sox Ortiz/Bellhorn/Mueller/Millar in years past to current guys like Aceves/Andrew Millar/Matt Albers/Salty who are big parts of this years team. Theo is one of the best GM's in baseball and hopefully will be here for a very long time.

    Cano great signing.
    Jeter no choice
    ARod ownership interfered
    Gardner great pick and wise to show faith.
    Swisher great trade
    Granderson great trade
    Posada signing a mistake.
    Martin good so far
    Burnett bad signing but he was great against Sox w/ Tor. 
    Hughes good pick not overslot
    Garcia and Colon great so far
    Montero great move 

    Neither the Sox nor Cashman have drafted many power hitters (I think Lowell was the last NYY, and Youk and Nixon). A big part of that is a consequence of drafting late.  Both teams have been paying overslot the last few years, with mixed results.

    Using FA to remain competitive every year and never drafting high is going to lead to some costly busts.

    Re: Brian Cashman

    Personally as much as we all talk about the NYY I have no issue with NHSteven starting a thread about Cashman on the board.

    Cashman is a solid GM. Omar Minaya with the NYY budget probably just makes a bigger mess than he did with the Mets.

    The NYY never get any credit for any of the young players they develop like Cano or Gardner. If Hughes does rebound well from his injury it won't change the fact that the kid was solid. He often makes solid trades.

    He has taken the lazy route often with the bullpen and written big checks for set-up men with mixed results. Stocking a bullpen for Joe Torre wasn't easy either, because he'd find a few favorites and work them into the ground. The experience Coletti had in LA wasn't much different.

    And yes the Tampa mafia does intefer. He wanted to sign Vladdy Guerreo and the Boss insisted on Sheffield. You bet there was huge pressure to do the Randy Johnson deal. Soriano this year is not an isolated moment. And I don't doubt that Jeter's contract would have been smaller if the boys did not mess with Cashman.

    But right now even some things that don't look great in 2011, on balance were good moves. Posada's extension may be one year too long but on balance it was a wise move to keep him.

    Cashman has had remarkable good fortune so far this year with 'bargain shopping". It may not be enough to win the whole thing and NY being NY the lesson won't be that you can bridge until the right player becomes available either through your own development, trade or FA. Rather the lesson for the Stienbrenner boys may be that you have to spend big to win big. If I ahd to bet on it, I am betting this will be Cashman's last year in NY and that we will find out that Cashman has more talent than just his ability to write the biggest check.

    Once again, hypocrisy at his finest. You're the one who starts the attacking; I only attack if provoked by a junevile who spews vitriol at me, and most of the other regular posters, the majority RS fans, will back me up. How clever of you, in an infantile sort of way, for you to switch threads so as to hide accountability. As a result, you interrupted this thread, which I started. Sad.

    Tough to say how many of the FAs were BC's idea or Steinbrenner's idea.

    But if you go to the single area where it's mostly judgement, with limited ability to outbid everyone, it's the draft.  The NYY, since about 1996, have drafted almost no one.  Correct me if I'm worng, but they have not drafted a pitcher with more than 36 career wins since 1996, and have not drafted a hitter with more than 1100 career ABs since 1996.

    Ironically I agree but a lot of luck came into play there too.  There's no explanation to Garcia's success and there was no indicator that he would bounce back this season.  Colon, in my opinion, is using some sort of PED so I'm going to exclude him from this discussion.  Other than that, the other two have saved the Yankees this season.

    Re: Brian Cashman

    I'm going to answer this Moon style, without pasting from others.


    1. The Steinbrenner's are responsible for the ARod & Soriano contracts; otherwise, it's all Cashman. His hands were partly tied with Jeter. Also, someone pointed out Randy Johnson as another expensive flub of his.

    2. I don't think Cashman is directly responsible for the successes/failures of the Yankee farm system.  FWIW, it was rated this spring by several prospect organizations as #4 or #5 (While the RS ranged from # 12 to # 17).

    3. F. Garcia won 12 games for ChA last yr, FWIW (With pretty much the same slow stuff).

    4. The jury is still out on Colon's stem cell procedure, and it's definitely worth investigating. So far, MLB has found no wrongdoing.

    5. As far as homegrown NYY players since 1996 with 1100 ABs & 36 IPs; off the top of my head, there's Nick Johnson, A. Soriano, Lilly, Cano, Gardner (not sure he has 1100), H. Bush, M. Cabrera, Aceves, Wang, Ian Kennedy, Joba, Robertson, Coke, Logan, Choate, Westbrook, E. Ramirez, Bruney, Karstens, Ohlendorff, & Hughes. I'm guessing Matsui & Contreras don't count.

    He keeps saying no; he's tired of paying a king's ransom for mercenaries or rent-a-players. Perhaps that's just being coy; but he tends to be honest (to a fault), so as a result this time I believe him.
