Cashman to discuss contract with ownership

According to Ed Price, Brian Cashman and Hank Steinbrenner are set to discuss a new contract while Cashman is in Tampa for the draft.

"We're going to be talking about it," said Steinbrenner, the team's co-chairperson.

Cashman flew to Tampa yesterday for MLB's First-Year Player Draft, which begins today. Asked if he wants to keep Cashman and if Cashman wants to stay, Steinbrenner said, "That's the impression I get."

Cashman should be back next year. While it's easy to disagree with the way he's built the bullpen, I feel he's been a fine general manager. He has a lot of money to play around with, so he can make more mistakes than the average GM, but overall he has done a solid job of building up the farm system.

Cashman has seemed to smooth things over with the organization since his last contract negotiation, so this may not be as difficult a process as it was three years ago.
