Via YankeesPR, Yankees’ assistant general manager Jean Afterman is being honored by Women in Sports and Events as one of it’s Women of the Year. Afterman has been Brian Cashman‘s primary assistant since 2001, and as far as I know, she’s more involved with the business aspect of the game (contract negotiations, etc), not necessarily player evaluation and what not.

Congrats to Afterman, being named Woman of the Year by any organization is a pretty big deal.

    A hearty congratulations to my personal go-to theoretical Cashman underboss in all the imaginary Yankee braintrust interoffice discussions in my head.

    J Afterman eh? The Igawa draft yields unexpected benefits. What the ex Alaska governor wasn’t available?

    What happened to “politically correct”? Why not “person” of the year?

  • Jammy Jammers

    Ironic that her name is AfterMAN, isn’t it?
