Brian Cashman drove up to Boston on Friday and he will drive home to Connecticut sometime today. At some point on that trip, he’ll decide whether he want to remain the GM of the Yankees.
The Post reported today that “the buzz” is Cashman will return. But in speaking one-on-one to Cashman yesterday, he said that nobody knows what he wants to do because he hasn’t decided yet.
Cashman compared his choice to signing up for another tour of duty. It might be the honorable thing to do, but he’s already paid his dues. He has held his job longer than any GM in Yankees history since George Weiss back in the 1950s. The job Weiss had shares only a title with the job Cashman does now. Being the GM of the Yankees has its perks. But the pressure and hassle outweighs that.
I think we’ll learn what happened either tonight, tomorrow or by Tuesday morning at the latest.
