Yanks ink GM for three more years
By SPORTS NETWORK
NEW YORK - The New York Yankees announced Tuesday that they have signed Brian Cashman for three years, keeping him entrenched in his role as senior vice president and general manager through the 2014 season.
The 44-year-old has served in his role since February 1998, presiding over the franchise's renaissance which includes 11 division crowns, six American League pennants (1998-2001, 2003, 2009) 13 postseason berths and four World Series titles (1998-2000, 2009).
Under Cashman's watch, the Yankees set a major league record by earning a playoff berth in each of his first 10 seasons (1998-2007) at the helm.
New York completed the 2011 season with a 97-65 record and finished atop the AL East, but fell to the Detroit Tigers in a five-game ALDS.
Cashman currently holds the third-longest tenure of any general manager in baseball, and is the longest-serving Yankees GM since Ed Barrow -- who stayed at the post from 1920 until 1945.
The Long Island native has compiled a 1,369-895-2 record with the Yanks.
