This statement from Brian Cashman:
â€œI know Iâ€™ve said it before, but itâ€™s an incredible opportunity and honor to hold the title of general manager for the New York Yankees. With it comes a great responsibility to ownership, the people who wear the uniform and our fan base. Iâ€™ve got a job to finish here. Thatâ€™s the bottom line.
â€œI consider coming off a season where we didnâ€™t reach the playoffs for the first time since 1993 as a personal challenge. Iâ€™ve never been one to run from a challenge, and I look forward to having the chance to go after this thing again.â€
