Cashman to Rappel for Stamford Holiday Event

Here's the press release as Yankees GM Brian Cashman once again prepares to rappel down a building in the Stamford holiday event:

On Friday morning, December 5 from 6:00 to 9:00 am (ET), Rick Reichmuth, FOX News Channel’s Meteorologist, Brian Cashman, General Manager of the New York Yankees and Bobby Valentine, Athletic Director at Sacred Heart University will rappel from the one of Stamford, CT’s tallest buildings, the Landmark Building. Santa’s Elf, Brian VanOrsdel will be on hand, strapping Brian and Bobby in and guiding them down the 22 stories of the building, all the while broadcasting live on the FOX News Channel, “FOX & Friends” morning newscast.
The event marks the start of Rappelling Santa’s arrival in Stamford and is a good practice run for the rappelling crew for Sunday’s Heights & Lights program.
On Sunday, December 7 at 5:00 pm, Brian Cashman, Bobby Valentine, Santa and friends are scheduled once again to make their daredevil descent down the 22 stories of the Landmark Building, for Reckson, A Division of SL Green Realty Corp’s Rappelling Santa. After the rappel, Santa’s busy holiday schedule will take him straight up Bedford Street to Latham Park where he will join the Stamford Community for music with The Cast of Peter Pan Jr. from Saxe Middle School and the lighting of the Holiday Tree, donated by Bartlett Tree Company.

  1. And this is why this guy is a clown. How he got a three year contract is beyond me. His big signing has been Chris Young. That signing is worth a used bag of baseballs

    1. Be patient Ken, we're not in December yet and none of the big name free agents or trade targets we would need, want or be interested in are off the board yet. Plus it's for charity, hard to knock a guy for that. Doesn't mean you can't pray his carabiner fails and he falls, but you can't knock him for it lol.

  2. I just want the elf gone. I would never wish for him to fall though it does cross my mind lol. I just think he is a terrible gm that bought $$$ his way out of mistakes as well as lived off of Stick and Watson's farm system enabling him to win his WS rings

    1. And I don't think anyone would disagree with you, especially about Gene Michael's legwork, but he gets one right every once in a while. See the Pineda trade, see the Swisher trade, etc.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
