Cashman delivers ring to Nady
OAKLAND -- One day after the Yankees brought 2009 World Series rings across the country for Athletics pitchers Chad Gaudin and Edwar Ramirez, general manager Brian Cashman crossed from the Bronx to Queens to hand off another.
Cubs outfielder Xavier Nady received an unexpected surprise at Citi Field when Cashman delivered the glittering prize to the former Yankee before Chicago's game against the New York Mets. Nady told The Associated Press that he thought the ring was "gorgeous."
The Yankees' starting right fielder on Opening Day last season, Nady played just seven games for New York all year, going on the disabled list in April with a right elbow injury that eventually required Tommy John surgery.
