Yankees "100 percent'' behind Cashman


According to a source I spoke with last night, Brian Cashman, "is totally 100 percent supported by the Yankees'' in the matter of the woman arrested Wednesday evening on charges of allegedly stalking and extorting the Yankees GM.

Asked if there could be further repercussions for Cashman if more revelations come out, the source said, "The team considers this a personal matter. He's a grown man who was being harrassed. The team will stand behind him in this.''

Neither Cashman, team president Randy Levine, nor Cashman's attorney, Eric Creizman have returned phone calls seeking comment.
