All Eyes On Yankees GM Cashman With Payroll Restrictions
Published March 28, 2013
ON THE HOT SEAT: SNY's Marc Malusis said Cashman is “between a rock and a hard place” with expensive contracts for 3B Alex Rodriguez, SS Derek Jeter, OF Curtis Granderson and 1B Mark Teixeira, who are all hurt. Malusis said, “You can’t go out there and replace” players like Granderson and Teixeira and “balloon your payroll to $250 million, that’s unrealistic.” SNY’s Eamon McAnaney said Cashman will “take a hit” this season. But he added, “I don’t think he gets fired if they struggle and don’t make the playoffs. I think he has enough collateral built up and he’s been around long enough that they’re not going to have a knee-jerk reaction and can him.” McAnaney said it does “put a bigger bullseye on his (back) for the next year” (“The Wheelhouse,” SNY, 3/25).
