Stottlemyre: July 18th

Cashman: August 31st

Stottlemyre gone as soon as the Yankees lose two series to Baltimore and one in Fenway in mid-July, Cashman gone once Steinbrenner realizes that his team is absolute sh!t entering September.

Stottlemyre- july 25 (1st off day after brutal road stretch against boston, texas, and angels)

cashman- end of year or if/when yanks are mathmatically eliminated from making the playoffs, whichever comes first.

Stottlemyre will not be fired. He's a package deal with Torre. He could leave on his own or he might decide to retire next year but there is no way IMO Steinbrenner fires him mid-season and risks alienating Torre.

I also think that Cashman will be allowed to finish out the year and then won't be welcomed back. That's my guess.

I'm most interested in the replacements, particularly the next GM.

If you happen to spot someone with a blank look on his face, repeatedly saying, "Yes, Mr. Steinbrenner. Yes, Mr. Steinbrenner. Yes, Mr. Steinbrenner" that'll probably be the guy.

It would be interesting to truly know how much George picked the players, and Cashman worked out the deals.

It's crazy to think how old they are. You'd think they'd lock up every young stud 24-26 years old for the last 5+ years. Except they grabbed every stud 34-36, errrr 38-42.

I have a feeling Cashman had little to do with finding the players, he merely told George what they needed. Then George said geting me RJ, and Cashman had to go get him. I just don't believe any GM, in that high profile a place, with that many rings, would willingly sign so many old farts.

Nonsense. George had his hand in RJ, Sheff, Matsui, Giambi, Boone, and Wells deals/signings.

If you really think that George was pulling the strings telling Cashman to go get him Weaver, Vazquez, Wright, Pavano, Hammond, Witasik, RonDL, Womack, Brown, Miceli, Heredia, G, White, etc you are just using George as a punching bag. There is no glitz of glamor in signing Wright. Or in getting Weaver or any of these stiffs. These are the deals that absolutely have killed us in the past 3 or 4 years. And they are largely Cashman blunders.

George's move have been a mixed bag. Sheff, Matsui and Wells have/did work out. The Giambi move was absoolutely awful. RJ is TBD. Even the Boone deal led to Arod ultimately and Claussen is hardly anything to get excited about in the first place.
