Blog: Cashman, the Free Agent

Yankees GM Brian Cashman is a free agent at the end of this season.

In a post to Was Watching, Steve Lombradi wonders if Cashman could be of interest to the Mets, in the event Omar Minaya is fired between now and next season.

…i do not think omar will be fired…but, it is interesting, in that he has really received very little criticism, which is odd, since most people are putting a ton of blame on the players…and since he acquired most of these players, it stands to reason that he should get some of the criticism

Last Friday, in a post to his blog for Daily News, Adam Rubin explained why Minaya deserves a lot of blame, adding that it’s too easy to just scapegoat Willie Randolph.

…i like when rubin gets critical…he writes with a clear-cut, insightful passion that i enjoy…it may be time to make him a columnist, though he does a great job on the beat…
