Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said a decision has "yet to be made" on whether the team will make a qualifying offer to reliever David Robertson (Hoch, Oct. 13).

Robertson had 39 saves in 44 chances and a 3.00 ERA as he succeeded Mariano Rivera as the Yankees closer. He is eligible for free agency.

"What happens as we move forward with him and the qualifying offer is yet to be determined, but we thank David and we're proud of what he's done here and how he's handled himself here," Cashman told reporter Bryan Hoch. "The final decision that has to be made here, first and foremost, is yet to be made."

It's a headline from the past: 'Steinbrenner criticizes players.' And even if the words were more measured than in the 1970s, '80s and '90s, they still carry plenty of weight with the Yankees.Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner channeled his late father George on Wednesday in Baltimore, before the Yankees' 5-3 loss to the Orioles. While acknowledging the team's string of pitching injuries, Steinbrenner described the offense as being "as a whole, inconsistent. It's been .a problem. And it needs to change, needless to say." (MLB.com, Aug. 13)The Yankees, eight games behind first-place Baltimore in the AL East and 3 1/2 games out of a wild-card berth, spent $283 million on acquiring ?Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran as free agents in the offseason, but haven't delivered results befitting their salaries.Steinbrenner prefaced his remarks about the offense by noting the pitching injuries."All teams have injuries, but when you lose four of your starting pitchers by the All-Star break, three by the first or second week in May -- it's going to have an impact on any club, in my opinion, regardless of how good their farm system is," Steinbrenner told MLB.com .?"That's certainly been part of it. But we put a lot of money into the offense as well."The Yankees entered play on Wednesday ranked 11th in the AL ?in runs ?(471) and OPS (.696), and ninth in home runs (107). Ellsbury is hitting .278 with 10 homers and tied for the team lead in RBI (52) with Mark Teixeira. The numbers of McCann (.238, 15 HR, 49 RBI) and Beltran (.243, 14, 45) ?are ?also cause for concern. No Yankee regular is hitting over .300.Steinbrenner said he wants to he wants to see the offense ?improve over the ?final 44 games."They have to. They know that," Steinbrenner told MLB.com. "They're professionals and the talent is there. But they've got to step it up and they know that. ... Look, my job is to be an optimist, and I am confident."Steinbrenner added he has not made any decisions about general manager Brian Cashman's future. Cashman has had the position since February 1998, and his three-year contract expires after this year.Steinbrenner also said ?the Yankees are expecting Alex Rodriguez to return next season, though he has not had any recent contact with the suspended slugger. Rodriguez will have three years and $61 million remaining under contract when his suspension expires.
