NEW YORK (AP) -- Despite constant speculation about manager Joe Torre's job, New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner says someone else also needs to deliver as the team looks to reverse its floundering start: general manager Brian Cashman.
"He's on a big hook," a spirited Steinbrenner told The Associated Press in a rare interview from this Tampa office. "He wanted sole authority. He got it. Now he's got to deliver."
...
As for Torre, the Yankees manager since 1996, Steinbrenner said "we are not considering a change."


Kenny has put together nice teams with 70-100 mill, I couldn't imagine what he'd do with what Cashman gets to play with. Meanwhile, I am surprised that these past teams (with that SP and middle relief) have won the East, so I think Torre is doing something right

I think we are looking at the 1965 Yankees. Meanwhile the media in NYC ignores the Mets.

The Mets are playing as expected. The real story is the implosion of the ~ $200 mil payroll.

Let's see what the media would do here if the similar story unfolds on the North Side.
