I was surprised.
Shouldnt have been, I guess, considering Phils fans were calling for his head on a stick.

First competitors for Cashman.

Cashman lives in New Jersey.
Philly is right down the turnpike.

mmmmmmmm......
Could be.
But the Phils only need a little retooling to get there.
I would think he'd want more of a challenge.
The Yanks would be fools to let Cashman go, but I do believe he wants out.

Wades good moves out weigh his bad moves, imo.

They keep on bringing up Shilling and Rolin, but both those players forced trades and Rolin is a bum anyways.

Granted, Wade had 8 years to get there, but he assembled a good team.
If the Phils get there next year (and they should with some pitching adjustments if they hold on to Wags) the new GM knows he's ridin Wades coat tails.

Zvon,
I'd think Cashman would be challenged-out by now.
I can't imagine the pressure he was under trying to satisfy Boss George.
If all they need is re-tooling, he might look at this as a walk in the park.

tru...and i have no idea what Cashman really wants.

Bein a Philly GM is no picnic, tho.
Ive heard Cashman's name in respect to Philly and Seattle so far.
Ill take the long shot and bet he stays with the Yanks.
He made all the right moves this season, I thought.

OOH... I just thought of something.

If Cashman wants to stick it to Steinbrenner, and get away from the high expectations, he could take the GM position recently opened up in...

TAMPA BAY.

That would be beautiful, watching Steinbrenner go nuts over losing Cashman to the Devil Rays.
