Brian Cashman expects to sign new contract by October 31

There’s never been much doubt about Brian Cashman and the Yankees working out a new contract and the general manager told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com that “it’ll get done between now and October 31, I’m sure.”

October 31 is when his current contract expires and Cashman explained that “it’s not a pressing circumstance, as far as something I’m worried about right now.”

In other words, he obviously isn’t going anywhere after finishing a three-year, $6 million deal. However, with talk of Theo Epstein getting a five-year, $20 million deal from the Cubs it’s tough to imagine Cashman not wanting and getting a raise. He’s been the Yankees’ GM since 1998.
