Brian Cashman survived the descent. He made it 22 stories, straight down, wearing full elf gear. And when he got to the ground, he managed to give Erik Boland his thoughts on the Jayson Werth contract.
The better Werth quote from a New York GM: “It makes some of our contracts look pretty good,” Sandy Alderson said.
That’s comedy, my friends.
Cashman isn’t expected in Orlando until very late tonight. Until he gets here, this place will feel like the calm before the inevitable storm for the Yankees. Right now, the biggest Yankees news to break was a fake announcement from the crew working on the official MLB podium just outside the press room. Testing the microphone, a guy took it upon himself to make this announcement: “Derek Jeter has just signed with the Tampa Bay Rays.”
It was kind of funny, but not Alderson-level funny.
And now, without further ado, pictures of Brian Cashman in an elf costume.
