Cashman's contract is up Oct 31st. Do you think he'll get resigned? I hope he does. I don't see anybody out there that could do a better job except maybe Billy Beane. Billy likes it in Oakland where he can be the big cheese without being put under a microscope. He had his chance to go to a big time market with Boston, but took the easier. softer way. Brian has to battle so many external forces to get anything done that it's a miracle he doesn't have ulcers. Maybe he does.
