“Along with a few other teams, we’re basically baseball’s stimulus package,” he said. “As long as we’re..giving all this money to other teams in revenue sharing, a staggering amount, we should be able to spend on salaries what we want to. Because of revenue sharing and because of the popularity nationwide, the Yankees are critical to baseball.”

TAMPA, Fla. – Manny Ramirez in pinstripes?
Hank Steinbrenner said the Yankees will explore all options during the offseason, including the possibility of making an offer to the free-agent slugger.
“There’s nothing we are not looking at,” Steinbrenner said Friday at the Yankees’ spring training complex. “And personally, I like Manny. He’s one of the greatest hitters in the history of the game. He’s a free spirit for sure, but he knows how to win. We like some of the other guys, too. We just don’t know yet.”
Ramirez was traded from Boston to the Dodgers on July 31, and Los Angeles is expected to attempt to re-sign the high-priced outfielder.
New York’s priority is pitching, and CC Sabathia and A.J. Burnett figure to be the top starters on the market.
“Every team in baseball wants Sabathia,” Steinbrenner said. “That’s the bottom line. It’s not a real secret. Pitching is in the forefront for everybody, not just us. That’s why starting pitching is at a premium.”

- Hank the Tank Steinbrenner will be forming an advisory committee to review the entire organization this offseason. Brian Cashman would be leading it, but it seems like this is taking away some of his power. Although I would like to see Ca$h return, it would not be devastating to lose him, as the Yankees have able replacements in Gene Michael and Damon Oppenheimer.
- The Padres have claimed Scott Patterson off waivers and have sent him directly to the majors. This is news to me, as I was unaware that Patterson was put on waivers. I don't understand, as I think Scott deserved a chance in the majors. Here's hoping he has a successful career in San Diego.

"We have gone through the frustration and disappointment," Cashman said. "Now the focus is on the small things. Try and pick up a game a week and get to Fenway Park and make that series meaningful."Is it too much, a game a week?" Cashman said. "It's not out of the realm of possibility. You can't do it in three or four days. Make up a game a week and get to Fenway Park with a chance. If (Boston) wants to make it easier, I'll take that."

Red Sox 75-55 -4.5
Yankees 70-60 -9.5
Red Sox 75-55
Twins 74-57 -1.5
Yankees 70-60 -5
This is the series that decides the season. There are only 32 games left and they are 5 behind. We need to win.
Hank The Tank said yesterday: “If we put on a run here, there’s no question we can make it,” Steinbrenner said yesterday in Tampa. “There’s no question with the number of games we have left, it’s possible.”
It's possible but improbable, to start that run we need to crush the Bo Sox

"I'm a big Hank fan," Henry wrote in an email to the newspaper. "Just to ensure he knows how cool Red Sox Nation is, [Saturday] we officially inducted him as a member of Red Sox Nation and we are sending him his membership card giving him access to an array of options including our newsletter, bumper stickers, pins, Green Monster seats and a hat personally autographed by David Ortiz."
Thank you John Henry. Now I can not wait to see what Hammerin' Hank The Tank has in store for his next quote.

Also, Hank the Tank voiced his opinion yet again. Hank spoke profoundly of his thoughts on our friends up in Boston. Here's what he said:
“Red Sox Nation?” Hank says. “What a bunch of [expletive] that is. That was a creation of the Red Sox and ESPN, which is filled with Red Sox fans. Go anywhere in America and you won’t see Red Sox hats and jackets, you’ll see Yankee hats and jackets. This is a Yankee country. We’re going to put the Yankees back on top and restore the universe to order.” (Source)Well, that's about the best thing he possibly could have said.

"It's still in the deciding process," Steinbrenner said Monday night outside Legends Field at the Yankees' spring training complex. "We're still discussing it. There's still a little talk back and forth." (Source:SI)
He went on to say there never even was an official offer:
"There wasn't an official offer anyway. You can't withdraw something that wasn't there," Steinbrenner said. "There was no official offer on the table at this time."
When will all this madness end?
*Also it exactly one month until pitchers and catchers- Feb 14- it begins*
