Latest word from Tampa:
There were apparently two sets of meetings. The first consisted of Brian Cashman and the New York-based execs with the Steinbrenner sons.
Then the sons and son-in-law Felix Lopez met with Big Stein at his mansion. No word on whether the whole crew will assemble today.
Meanwhile, a television network from Taiwan interviewed me on the matter. I have no idea what this says but hopefully it’s good.
I don’t usually mind the antics of Manny Ramirez. He’s harmless for the most part and he really works at what he does. But there is no reason to pose at the plate when you homer and your team is still down by four runs in a playoff game.
Run the bases. Pimping at that time makes you look silly. But good for Cleveland for not hitting him in the eighth inning. The best revenge is winning the game.
A Shot of Love with Tila Tequila on MTV will get better ratings than Rockies-Indians in the Series. Fox must be horrified. Somebody better tell Dane Cook how to pronounce Yorvit Torrealba.
Finally, what is up with people who rip me in the comments section but put a fake e-mail address so I can’t reply? Rip away, I can take it. But man up and don’t hide.
