While scanning the morning headlines, I ran across this story from George King in the New York Post. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is in the last year of a three-year contract, and all indications are the two sides will not discuss an extension until after the season.

In the story, King cautions that waiting to sign Cashman could eventually mean losing him to another major league team. King mentions the Phillies, simply because Pat Gillick is retiring and the Phillies reportedly showed interest in Cashman back in 2005.

The Phillies aren't going to make a decision on Gillick's succesor until after the season. It seems as though the team's two assistant general managers - Ruben Amaro Jr. and Mike Arbuckle - are the leading candidates. Amaro Jr. has essentially served as the franchise's spokesman for the past year, briefing reporters on trades and the like. Arbuckle, in charge of scouting and player development, has helped build the team's home-grown nucleus, discovering talents like Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins and Cole Hamels. He was also named in a Baseball America survey in 2002 as one of the best GM candidates in the game.

Still, the organziation hasn't ruled out hiring someone from the outsides, as it did with Gillick a few years ago.
