I read this news from Peter's blog,
He(Cashman) said he’s evaluating players both in terms of this season and next. He also said he is not going to Tampa to discuss his own contract situation or necessarily to meet with the Steinbrenners. “This is where I feel I need to be,” he said.
I really can't tell neither whatever Cashman want to return next season nor whatever Yankees front office want him back. As you guys know, I am one of Cashman's supporters. Of course, I know Cashman is not a perfect or great general manager. But, I hope Cashman can stay few more years to keep doing his long-term plan which is young movement.
