The Other Paper:
Brian Cashman took a break from the payroll drama that is the New York Yankees and jumped out of a plane from 12,500 feet Monday morning. Not that the pressure was getting to him or anything — the Yankees general manager did it to raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project and his own sense of worth.
The jump with the Golden Knights of the U.S. Army, based out of Homestead Air Force Base in Florida, marked what was the latest in several stunts performed by the daredevil GM to promote various causes.
"It's an opportunity to do something that a lot of people don't do or will ever do, so that's awesome," Cashman said the other day before the leap of faith. "It's called living."
Cashman — who was accompanied by The New York Daily News writer John Harper — loved the initial jump so much that he went back to do it a second time, calling it "an incredible experience."
The second time was not a charm after Cashman injured his ankle on the landing and emergency vehicles were bought in to take care of the injured GM. Cashman said he "heard a pop" on touchdown and Harper reported that a bone was "sticking out."
Now where does that sound familiar in spring training — oh yeah, Joba Chamberlain.
Harper documented the thrill-seeking Cashman's tandem jump with photos of Cashman getting ready to exit the plane and the South Florida view from 9,000 feet — still a half mile lower than the jumping off altitude.
"We're in the plane. Fortunately only Cashman is jumping," Harper tweeted from the doorless plane. How right he was.
Cashman injured on 2nd landing. They've brought ice to put on his foot or ankle. Apparently Caught it in ground on landing.

When Yankees GM Brian Cashman started his "look at me, I'm rappelling" nonsense a few years ago, I got hate mail from his minions for daring to criticize his immaturity. Apparently, if you act like a complete knucklehead, risking your life and health, but it's for charity, it's perfectly acceptable to some people. I wondered then about what would happen if something...

If Brian Cashman was a player, the Yankees would have traded him by now. One too many back page headlines, and one too many disastrous deals. And Monday would have been the final straw. The guy who questioned Joba Chamberlain’s decision to jump on a trampoline with his son just snapped his leg like Joe Theisman while leaping from a plane. The guy who said no to a second act of...
