NEW YORK -- Brian Cashman wants to stay, and the New York Yankees want him back.
The general manager has a year left on his contract and has had some well-publicized clashes with team brass and even captain Derek Jeter. But Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner still says he "absolutely" wants Cashman to return.
And Cashman scoffed at suggestions that he is doing things to shorten his stay in the Bronx.
"Am I trying to get fired? Absolutely not," Cashman said.
