Quick Hit: Hey, did you hear the one about Brian Cashman jumping out of a plane?

If you didn’t, here’s the gist: Yankees’ GM Brian Cashman jumped from a plane, twice and he hurt himself doing it.

It was for a good cause – the Wounded Warriors – but the result wasn’t that great for Cashman who seems to have suffered an ankle fracture on his second landing. He was taken to the hospital and reports from there are that it’s a compound fracture. They’re even saying that his bone was sticking out.

Now, those reports have not been confirmed yet but what is known is that Cashman did jump out of a plane twice and that he didn’t quite stick the landing on the second attempt.

So will Cashman land on the 30-day or 60-day DL? We’ll let you know.

UPDATE: Ken Davidoff tweeted that Cashman said there was no bone protruding from his leg. Thank goodness. But that it is probably broken.

    "He was taken to the hospital and reports from there are that it’s a compound fracture. They’re even saying that his bone was sticking out." Cashman was heard to say get Joba on the phone and see what he did to rehab. Actually it's NO joking matter. I wish him a speedy and uneventful recovery.

  2. Cashman's been doing a number of these dangerous charity-driven stunts. While it's for a good cause, it's a shame he got hurt.

      I joked that he'd be jumping out of a Red Bull pod from space next.

    What an absolutely ridiculous thing for Cashman to do and the Steinbrenner Bros. Shallow Hal and Hankenstein to approve. What if Cashman got hurt so seriously, he couldn't do his job as general manager of the New York Yankees? I thought the rapelling off a building in Stamford, CT was stupid, too. There are other, safer ways to do charity work.

    Oh wait, I forgot, this is the same ownership who has yet to say they will forbid Mariano Rivera from playing catch before games again because that's how he got knocked out for the season after the first month. Mo stole $15M from the Yanks and cost them Soriano for 2013 because if he had not tempted fate and played catch before games at age 42, the 2013 Yanks would most likely have had a Rivera/Soriano/Robertson/Aardsma/Logan/Rapada/TBD bullpen where Chamberlain could've been traded for a bat and the Yans would still have Phelps, Eppley, Kelley, Montgomery etc. for the final bullpen slot. Soria could've been that TBD for up to FOUR in-house post-Mo closer options for 2014 assuming Mo retired after 2013: Soria, Soriano, Robertson, and Aardsma. Now the Yanks have only two (Robertson and Aardsma), all because Mo had to play catch.

    • Wow, that's a leap almost as far as Cashman's.

      What an absurd thing to write. You've left out several important details!

      If Mo had been healthy, they would have traded him to the Angels for Mike Trout. Then they could've afforded to trade Curtis Granderson for Ryan Braun. That way, they could've seamlessly moved Gardner to right and Ichiro to catcher.

      But INSTEAD, we're stuck with Francisco Cervelli. :/
