The New York Yankees are expected to offer general manager Brian Cashman an extension, despite the likelihood that the team will miss the postseason again.
Multiple reports indicate the top brass of the Yankees is satisfied with Cashman's efforts to upgrade the team. Cashman made in-season deals that brought pitcher Brandon McCarthy, infielder/outfielder Martin Prado and third baseman Chase Headley to New York.
Cashman's contract, which expires at the end of the year, has been on the job for 17 years. He seems unfazed by the lack of job security.
"We've never done a deal until it's close to being up," he told CBSSports.com last week. "There's nothing more to say. All our focus is to try to win as many games as is necessary to qualify for the postseason."
During his term as Yankees general manager, New York has won four World Series titles and averaged more than 96 wins a season.
