Bob Nightengale tells us something interesting:
The #Yankees, but not GM Brian Cashman, quietly running background check on Josh Hamilton, rival GM says

Not so quiet, eh, Bob?
The most interesting part of that is the “not Brian Cashman” part. Sounds like Rafael Soriano part deux, where ownership — or maybe team president Randy Levine — is playing GM. Which is fun considering they apparently sent Cashman to Nashville with no money or mandate to do anything.
