When Derek Jeter secretly announced at a Yankee Stadium ceremony to honor his Hall of Fame induction that he expects to “see a lot of you,” the rumor mill intensified. Immediately, people started speculating that Jeter would replace Brian Cashman as Yankees GM.

But sorry, here are four good reasons not to.

1) Cashman is not in danger of losing his job, despite the wishes of some fans. Maybe the Yankees get out first, then get out early as a wild card, but still… Yep, some of Cashman’s recent moves aren’t working, but evaluating the GM takes full record attention. comes in, and he has 25 years of winning records. That’s a lot of victory.

2) Yankees boss Hal Steinbrenner values ​​consistency in a way his father never did. He’s not likely to completely change course from a “disappointing” 90-something-win season. And if he does, he’s unlikely to rent an unproven item.

3) Jeter is not known to be interested in a GM job. He was CEO in Miami, so technically GM would be a step down. Yes, it’s the Yankees, not the Marlins. But there are issues in the GM’s job that can deter Jeter, such as constantly accepting criticism. Cashman deals with this. Jeter loved only praise as an all-time great (and, if he’s reading, that was just that). He started the Players Tribune, which presents only authorized/clean “news”, the way he likes.

4) There is no evidence that Jeter would be a better GM than Cashman. Cashman has won four titles, and while it’s been a while, the Yankees struggle annually. According to sources, Jeter remained above the ground because of his high position in Miami, but he was actually the GM. And while winning on a shoestring isn’t easy, things didn’t go well.

Even before this disappointing season played out, Jeter and ownership parted ways, and it’s hard to imagine Jeter actually leaving because they wouldn’t let him spend $100 million on Nick Castellanos, as the report suggested. was.

He still spent $92 million to sign Avicel García (Jeter took the lead in signing) and Jorge Soler, who ended up with injuries. You really think he’s leaving an employee he’s hired over $8 million to spend money on?

In fact, some partners were reported unhappy that the team was still losing money and games as before. Anyway, Castellanos has been barely better than Garcia, who is out again with a hamstring after a poor performance. Garcia has been called “Jeter’s parting gift” because $14 million a year for a non-producer is disastrous for a team that still doesn’t drag the mosquitoes to Miami.
