This is Brian Cashman's Team, Finally


For much of the 2000's and into the 2010's many Yankees fans complained that management had their hands in the day to day operations a little too much. Too many times have we seen management, Hank and Hal Steinbrenner along with Randy Levine, jump in and re-sign Alex Rodriguez, Rafael Soriano, trade for Ichiro Suzuki etc. Too many times have we seen management limit Brian Cashman's hands and let free agents like Russell Martin and Torii Hunter walk away or walk elsewhere. Looking at the transactions from the last 12-15 months we may be finally seeing a finished product of Cashman's team, not managements team, for better or worse.

Looking back Cashman has replaced every position on the field with the exception of first base and their ace in the last year or so while he waits out the contracts of Mark Teixeira and CC Sabathia. Cashman has let stars walk like Robinson Cano, and he should have, and has plugged in a plethora of youth all around the diamond. This is not a finished product, I don't think we see the finished product until after the 2016 or 2017 season, but it looks to me like Cashman may finally have the reigns of the team that he was promised so many years ago from the late George Steinbrenner.
