“I always told him, `I’m going to make the final decisions because when you’re the owner you should.’ He is the general manager, and he has the right to talk me out of it and he has talked me out of some things.” (From Pete Abe)Although Hank is Cashman's boss and can make decisions overruling Cashman, he shouldn't. Since George Steinbrenner gave total control to Brian Cashman, he has been making the right moves (except for Igawa), but two years later, his power has been stripped again. Right now if I'm Brian Cashman, who is in the final year of his contract, I reject any extension offered until Hank agrees to back off.

“When this grossly inaccurate story broke in October 2006, Roger said it was untrue and the Los Angeles Times chose not to believe him. As the record now clearly proves, Roger was telling the truth then, just as he continues to tell the truth today. Roger Clemens did not take steroids, and anybody who says he did had better start looking for a hell of a good lawyer.” (Source: Pete Abraham)
Looks like Clemens will be taking legal action.
In other news, Hank Steinbrenner ran his mouth again. He said that there is still an outside chance that the Yankees Land Johan Santana. Well, there is an outside chance that a lot things happen. Today is a really slow news day, which is why stuff like this is being reported.
Derek Jeter is a cool guy. He hosted an advanced screening for 500 hundrend NYC school children of the movie "Water Horse: Deep Sea Legend," as part of his Turn 2 Foundation. We pay so much attention to guys who cheat or engage in otherwise bad behavior (like dog-fighting and rain-making and Curt Schilling), and it makes you forget that there are still a few good guys left, like Derek Jeter.
