Yanks = signing top Free Agents = losing top draft picks = no top prospects.
This is the sad truth for Yanks. Last time Yanks were interested in building thru the farm G.Michael was the GM, and Yanks had a minny dynasty 96-01. Then came Brian Cashman and his sign the top FA approach. Which worked only in 09, but still had many of the same core guys that G.Michael drafted. Now all but Jeter are gone and Cash is spending more than ever, better hope it works? IMO Cashman gone long before Ells plays his last game in pinstripes!
Pretty accurate IMO
what's pretty acurate
yanks had a minny dynasty 96-01
Y not till 03 and what's so mini about 4/5
U have 2 go back the early 70's for 3/5
Which worked only in 09
only in 09 ?
speaking of the 70's
B4 this season that was the last time sox won 97 gms
yanks have won 97gm 8 times since their ''mini'' dynasty
seems like something might be working
nyy yr 2 yr wins
IMO Cashman gone long before Ells plays his last game in pinstripes!
LOL such a bold prediction
it's a 7 yr deal how many GM's last that long
now add the 16 at the job
how manys GM's last 23 yrs these days
is that what U meant by
'' Pretty accurate''
Cashman's not the sole voice when it comes to how the Yankees construct their roster nor is he responsible for the organizational phylosophies or setting budgets...Like every team the owners, the CEO (Levine) and the CFO layout the strategic plan each year and then charge the General Manager the task of managing within the budget and surrounding himself with qualified managers to execute the plan and live the company's mission statement.
The days of championship or bust the mantra of George Steinbrenner the bombastic, spotlight craving fire the manager, ownership model has long passed...The Yankees of today, more then ever are a big business. Cashman's job is secure as long as he continues to deliver profits...in Baseball that means winning...winning attracts the casual fan..the casual fan drives revenues...
