Here’s what Brian Cashman had to say about Hank Steinbrenner’s plan to form an advisory group:
“At the end of the day, I definitely without a doubt believe that as owners, they need to set up a structure they’re comfortable with. Simple as that,” he said. “I’m certainly not going to make this about me. I do have an advisory board: It’s my manager; it’s my coaching staff; it’s our pro scouting director; it’s our farm director; it’s our amateur scouting director.”
Interesting. Cashman would not say whether he wanted to return as general manager. I believed earlier this season that he and the Steinbrenners would agree on something in October. Now I’m not so sure. It’s gone from 80-20 to 60-40 in my mind.
The only other bit of news to come out the Stadium tonight is that Andy Pettitte has been lined up to start the final game on Sept. 21.
