Message to George Steinbrenner- Anaheim's got the players to make a deal, you don't


Message to Peter Gammons - New York has the money to do whatever they want.

This is a misconception this year. The Yankees don't have the additional money this year unless Steinbrenner decides to start shelling cash out of his own pockets which he has never done before.

The Yankees are on the brink of LOSING money this year for the first time in a long time.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
