Yanks' Cashman to parachute with Golden Knights

Brian Cashman's "significant offer" to Robinson Cano may be the biggest leap of faith he has taken over the past few weeks.

At least until the jump he takes Monday morning.

The New York Yankees general manager will parachute over Miami early that day with the Golden Knights of the U.S. Army to raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project.

"It's an opportunity to do something that a lot of people don't do or will never do, so that's awesome," said the daredevil Cashman. "It's called living.  But it's not like on my list of something I've always wanted to do.  I'm kind of excited for the opportunity to do it but at the same time, big-time nervous about doing it."

When someone asked Cashman about the Cano deal, he replied," I've got no comment.  I want to make sure I have a parachute."

Cashman wouldn't go into details about his tandem jump strapped to one of the elite Golden Knights and didn't want to know either.

"The less you know, the better you are," said Cashman who has rappelled own the side of a Connecticut office building for charity the last two holiday seasons.

"It's harder probably to be GM of the Yankees than jump out of an airplane," he reasoned.

At least we know one has a golden parachute.
