You hear the complaints about him, the stories of his machinations, but when it comes down to it everyone seems willing to put up with George Steinbrenner as long as they get plenty of money for doing so. Brian Cashman signed a three-year deal on Thursday for more than five million dollars to remain the GM of the Yankees.

Cashman claims
that things have changed and he will be in charge, but anyone who has watched the Yankees under George Steinbrenner will have a hard time believing that. Steinbrenner has only one goal every year, winning the World Series. If the Yankees fall short of that goal in 2006 you can bet that Brian Cashman will be held responsible.
