Showing Cash the Money

SI:

Both Steinbrenner brothers are now said by people familiar with their thinking to be on board with Brian Cashman as their general manager, for now and long into the future. Even if the Yankees fail to play into October for the first full season since 1993, club insiders say that the Steinbrenners plan to offer Cashman a contract extension after this season.

I've been in favor of an extension for Cash for the last year.  I think he's got a good plan for the future, one that will allow us to sign the worthwhile free agents like C.C. Sabathia. 

He's transitioned the Yankees to an affordable, effective bullpen.

And in the deals for Abreu and Nady/Marte he showed a willingness to flex financial muscle when it improves the team long term as well as for the moment.
