As the Yankees limp towards the home stretch of what has been their most disastrous season in more than three decades, ownership is reportedly ready to take a closer look at the direction of the organization.
According to Dan Martin of the New York Post, a “close look of the entire organization” will be conducted at the end of the season, with jobs “potentially in peril.”
Reports earlier in the season indicated that general manager Brian Cashman’s job was already deemed safe for next year by owner Hal Steinbrenner, but the Yanks have completely flopped since then, so that sentiment could have changed, or the jobs potentially in peril are more on the coaching staff side, including manager Aaron Boone.
Per Martin, two names in the front office that could be brought up for potential change include offseason hires Brian Sabean and Omar Minaya.
Those names likely won’t generate much satisfaction from the fanbase, as many feel the franchise’s issues date back years, not just this past offseason, when Sabean and Minaya were hired.
Steinbrenner said earlier in the season that he would have to ask “tough questions” about those in charge if the Yankees missed the playoffs, and with the team’s playoff odds near zero, those questions will have to be prepared.
