He Must Be a Masochist

Either that, or he really likes money.

Brian Cashman has reportedly agreed to remain general manager of the Yankees, thanks to a four-year, $8 million deal that makes him the highest paid GM in baseball history. Apparently thatís the price to pay for the abuse, the tantrums, and the pain of not really being in charge. I donít understand why Steinbrenner considers Cashman so indispensable while at the same time undermining him at every turn, but then Iíve never understood much about the Yankees and how they work.

Anyway, with Cashman now out of the mix for the job, the odds on who will be the next GM of the Phillies stand at:

Gerry Hunsicker: 3-to-1
Pat Gillick: 5-to-1
Jim Bowden: 7-to-1
Ruben Amaro, Jr.: 10-to-1
John Hart: 12-to-1
Mike Arbuckle: 15-to-1
Josh Byrnes: 20-to-1
Dan Duquette: 40-to-1
Howard Eskin: 7.8 million-to-1
