There was never much doubt about general manager Brian Cashman agreeing to a new contract with the Yankees and it sounds like the two sides could reach an agreement very soon.
Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News reports that negotiations for a new deal are “just about” complete and Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com confirms that story while adding that the talks “should be finished by the end of the week.”
According to McCarron the contract will be for at least three years and presumably Cashman will get a raise on his current $2 million salary. While not technically a general manager, Theo Epstein’s contract with the Cubs is reportedly worth $20 million for five years. Cashman has been the Yankees’ GM since 1998 and they’ve made the playoffs in all but one of his seasons at the helm, winning four World Series.
