"The reason I've been allowed to hang around so long is we've put out 95-plus-win teams on a yearly basis," Cashman said to in March. "But I also know that I'm not the reason we're winning, that I work for a very powerful franchise with owners who are massively committed to winning. I don't try to take more credit than I deserve, where others have gotten caught up in that and maybe it cost them some longevity. "I was taught under The Boss to never get too comfortable in this job, and I know storm clouds are forming right now … We've always been pretty good at finding ways to batten down the hatches."
