Cashman's reputation, possible offseason moves, Russell Martin, and The Player's Tribune.

NJ Advance Media for NJ.com-USA TODAY Sports

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: As ownership is poised to extend Brian Cashman, Hal Steinbrenner states that Cashman is a good general manager who is able to handle the New York media, fans, and has good relationships with the staff; he also credits Cashman with keeping the Yankees in the postseason race with his mid-season acquisitions.

New York Daily News | Mark Feinsand: Feinsand offers possible offseason moves that the Yankees should make, namely signing Yasmani Tomas, re-signing David Robertson, Brandon McCarthy, Chase Headley, and signing an inexpensive shortstop.

New York Post | Joel Sherman: Hal Steinbrenner says that, like the fans, he is very disappointed that the Yankees missed the postseason for a second straight season. He ensures fans that the organization will try to put together a Championship-caliber ball club and that the team will benefit from younger players and hopefully bounce-back years from veterans.

New York Times | Tim Rohan: Since leaving New York, former Yankees catcher Russell Martin has blossomed into one of the best catchers in baseball and is now making his second straight postseason appearance with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: In one of his first acts since retirement, Derek Jeter has started The Player's Tribune, a blog that hopes to connect fans directly to their favorite athletes--with no filters.
