The Yankees will start their vaunted organizational meetings tomorrow at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. Hal and Hank Steinbrenner will preside over a crew that will include Randy Levine, Lonn Trost and Brian Cashman along with the top people in the baseball operations department.
â€œItâ€™s to set our offseason priorities, certainly, and what we need to try and do,â€ Hank Steinbrenner told the Associated Press tonight. â€œThis year, we definitely are all pretty much on the same page. We know what we have to do, and itâ€™s going to take a lot of work and a lot of effort. Hopefully we can get as much done as we hope.
â€œOur goal is to win the World Series. This year was a little strange because the American League East was so powerful. We finished third because of the division weâ€™re in. But, is it acceptable for us to be with what we ended up with? No, itâ€™s not. So weâ€™re going to do what we can to correct that.â€
