Everyone thinks Cashman's job is easy, but it isn't. While he has the biggest payroll in baseball, he's under a great deal of pressure to put a championship squad on the field every season–no excuses. Name one other GM in the same position. You can't. Then, he has to contend with a tenuous media and an impatient fan base on top of it. As far as I'm concerned, he's one of the best GMs in baseball–and that's coming from a Red Sox fan.

He always puts down A-Rod at any chance he can get. I'm not a big fan of his nor am I a big fan of Cashman. But what he is doing, in the name of charity, is great. He's helping others and that's what it is all about.
Lastly, Lupica is a coward. Anytime you write a piece in the papers, you should put a comments section but he/Daily News won't do it. He writes like he knows everything yet he won't allow us, the people that actually reads his BS, an opportunity to chime in.

Let's face it; baseball is boring right now. Most of the interesting free agents are gone; Yankee writers are left to speculate about Pettite and Joba and the rotation and, yep, Cashman. At least during Spring Training, they get to write about everyone being in the best shape of their lives.

Seriously, I don't know why anyone pays any attention to Lombardi, even for the sake of mocking him. I make it a point not to read him or similar bad blogs, and do just fine honestly. And I'd even put him in a separate class of bad blogging; places like Subway Squawkers or IIBHIIFIIC might be a mix of dumb/insane commentary, but Lombardi is totally different than that. Kabak nailed him completely earlier today on Twitter when he said, "[he] is a miser who takes joy in the Yanks’ losses. The only reason he still writes is because he gets off our annoyances."

Seriously, just ignore the guy completely. That will drive him crazier than anything else.

There could be an even simpler explanation though. He is simply trying to raise his profile. He's going into a contract year and by making himself more famous it creates more opportunities in case Hal decides not to offer him a new contract.

No, he isn't TRYING to get fired. He is just trying to go out on his terms if it happens.
