For a guy who broke his ankle and his fibula while sky-diving for charity earlier this week Yankees general manager Brian Cashman seemed awfully upbeat about the whole thing yesterday.
“I feel surprisingly good,” Cashman said, via Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York. “I’m not moving very well. I have no pain, which is surprising.”
Drugs are a helluva drug.
Cashman needed surgery to insert a plate into his leg and eight screws into his ankle, but did note that the injury making so many headlines enabled him to “take a negative and turn it into a positive” by drawing more attention to the Wounded Warriors Project.
There were probably ways to do that in which using crutches for two months weren’t required, but charity is charity I suppose. Oh, and Cashman also said he might do it again once he heals up.
