Yanks re-sign Brian Cashman to 4-year deal

The New York Yankees on Monday announced that the club has re-signed Brian Cashman to a four-year contract through the 2026 season to continue serving as Senior Vice President and General Manager.

Cashman, 55, is the longest-serving Yankees General Manager in franchise history and has the longest tenure among current Major League general managers. The Yankees have earned postseason berths in 21 of his 25 seasons as GM (1998-2007, ’09-12, ’15, ’17-22), claiming 14 Division titles, six American League championships and four World Series titles. Since 1998, the Yankees’ 21 postseason berths are the most in the Majors — five more than Atlanta (16) and St. Louis (16), who are tied for second in that span. The 21 playoff appearances are also eight more than any other American League team (Boston-13). Cashman’s feat of reaching the playoffs in each of his first 10 seasons (1998-2007) remains unmatched in Baseball history.

4/$148, same AAV as deGrom.

I have no idea what GM's are getting but even as a Red Sox fan, I have grudging respect for him.

Totally agree. I have been hoping for years that they'd get rid of him.

Not sure this was the re-signing Yankee fans were breathlessly anticipating.

God, he's only 55 years old. Dude has been around forever. I think I never really grasped how young he was when he first hit the big time.

Judge is going to want more than that so he's the best-paid Yankee.

Not sure this was the re-signing Yankee fans were breathlessly anticipating.
True, and I briefly wondered whether the announcement was a bad sign for that other re-signing, since bringing back Cashman might be more controversial if he had already let Aaron Judge get away. However, the Winter Meetings are also an obvious target date for formalizing the front office structure. No real news on Judge today, with the Yankees & Giants the only teams believed to have made serious offers, with other teams more in tire-kicking mode.

From a different article,

According to the Yankees, research conducted by Elias reveals that the Yankees "have been mathematically eliminated from postseason contention in just 16 of the 3,946 games during Cashman's tenure as GM."

Mystery team going for Judge might be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? I think the Yankees should be able to top any offer there. Latest reports have the Yankees exchanging ‘several offers’ with Judge’s camp, and having discussions with his agent today. Could be a sign a deal is being hammered out. Should know in a day or two.

Buccaneers, huh? As a tight end to replace Gronk?
   11. cHiEf iMpaCt oFfiCEr JE Posted: December 05, 2022 at 11:37 PM (#6108182)
Did we hear right that the Padres are the mystery club?

SAN DIEGO — The San Francisco Giants’ confidence is growing in their hopes of signing American League MVP Aaron Judge, with team officials divulging Monday that they have become ultra-aggressive in their talks to land the New York Yankees star.

There was a report by that Judge was scheduled to be in San Diego at the winter meetings on Tuesday, but one person close to Judge said Monday night that no trip was planned. Judge was spotted at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers football game Monday night against the New Orleans Saints in Tampa.


“He’s got a lot of leverage he’s put himself in,’’ Cashman said. “He’s earned that right. We should respect that. Certainly, at the end of day, when the dust settles and negotiations been exhausted, and he’s had a chance to vet every opportunity that exists, he will realize this is best place for him and his family moving forward.

“If he doesn’t, we’ll thank him for his time here, and find ways to be the best versions of ourselves as we move forward like we always have.’’

Did Elias take the time to tally up the payrolls over those 3,946 games?

I love that they paid to have somebody calculate this. Have they not noticed that they've made hte playoffs nearly every year?

Anyway, time for a tracer -- somebody's gotta find those 16 games now. Shouldn't be too hard (seriously).
