The Yankees made a disappointing first-round exit from the playoffs this year, but they’re not panicking or seeking a scapegoat. It’s much the opposite.
According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, negotiations have gone smoothly between the Yankees and GM Brian Cashman as the two sides look to reach agreement on a multi-year contract extension.
Cashman’s current deal, inked in 2008, runs out at the end of this month. But he has no desire to leave New York and the Yanks seem satisfied with the job he’s done since taking over as senior vice president and general manager in February of 1998.
Olney says a new contract should be signed, sealed and delivered within the next week.
