Cashman Or Minaya?

Baseball Crank says that, in the wake of the Yankees collapse, we should take advantage of George's impending wrath:

It's gonna be a long, angry and expensive off-season for the Yankees. If George fires Cashman, the Mets should immediately sack the rest of their front office and hire him.

And, y'know, I happen to agree. As upset as I would be to have the Mets turn over their front office twice in an offseason, I would hire Cashman in a heartbeat if he became available. It's going to be a long couple weeks for the Yankee execs. Stay tuned...

So we can hire a Yankee for a manager and a Yankee for our GM, why don't we just get it over with and change the teams colors and become the Yankees. I don't like the idea of Randolph and I like Cashman even less. Were the Mets and I stay away from anything related to the Yankees.

I would have paid 500 dollars to be in Cashman's head for 5 minutes after the loss..

An interesting article today on Cashman and his failure. Yes - his failure. While every other GM in baseball lived in reality, Cashman got to play with Bill Gates type money and managed to buy the greatest choke team in history. While he may have put together the biggest collection of big names in baseball, he did not put together a team that played together. If he cant put a gelling team together where the sky is the monetary limit, I wouldnt be so sure he could do that when there are earthly limits imposed on him.

Hmmm...well it's true that a lot of things he did didn't work this year (Brown & Vazquez especially). While he should be roasted over the coals for Brown (who was a big risk), he only got Brown because George wanted him to counter Schilling and Vazquez was considered a slam dunk by everyone. Giambi was too (who could have guessed he'd have both a tumor and a parasite).

I still honestly think Cashman is one of the best GM's in the game when George leaves him alone. As for scavening the Yankee organization for parts, well, some of those parts are still good. Just imagine how delicious it would be to see George fire Cashman in a fit of rage, have the Mets swoop in and snatch him up, and have him deliver a World Series championship to Flushing.

Just imagine how angry George would be and he'd have only himself to blame. Bwah, hah, hah!

Please, no more ex-Yankees. Haven't we had enough with Stanton? The thought of Randolph is sickening. And now some would have Cashman? So what has Cashman done? Ok, signs Henson to a big contract and he turns out to be a bust. Trades for Mondesi, another bust. Signs Contreras, yet another bust. Trades for Weaver. Big, big bust. Notice a pattern, eh? Give me someone like Jockety, Hunsicker, or Schuerholz. Now, we're talking.
