Yankee Ownership Overruled Cashman On Soriano

Apparently Hal Steinbrenner wanted Alfonso Soriano more than General Manager Brian Cashman did, according to this article. http://tracking.si.com/2013/07/27/yankees-ownership-overruled-brian-cashman-alfonso-soriano-trade/?sct=hp_t2_a4&eref=sihp It would seem Hal overruled Cashman on Rafael Soriano as well as Alex Rodriguez in 2007. If this is all true, it makes you wonder why Cashman stays with that team. It also kind of reinforces that the Cubs were lucky to find a taker for Alfonso Soriano and supports the idea that as far back as Jim Hendry's last year they were trying to practically give him away bt found no takers.
