I’m not sure how this happened, but an AP writer named Pat Milton got an interview with George Steinbrenner. Here are some highlights:

On Brian Cashman: “He’s on a big hook. He wanted sole authority. He got it. Now he’s got to deliver.”

On Roger Clemens: “I think Roger is capable of sparking the team. He is a veteran and will bring stability. I am happy he is coming back. I love him.”

On Joe Torre: “We are not considering a change.”

On Don Mattingly: “Mattingly is a good one. He is very thorough guy. He understands what it is to be a Yankee.”

On Andy Pettitte: “He’s a real gutsy guy. We are happy he is back with us.”

On Jason Giambi: “He should have kept his mouth shut. The matter is in the hands of the baseball commissioner.”

On the Yankees in general: “We just have to get out there and compete, compete hard, and win.”
