The Yankees are checking in on Josh Hamilton

Bob Nightengale tells us something interesting:

The #Yankees, but not GM Brian Cashman, quietly running background check on Josh Hamilton, rival GM says

— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) December 7, 2012

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.
