Sam Borden just checked in from the Bronx after speaking to Hal Steinbrenner. He touched on a few hot topics:

Andy Pettitte: He and Brian Cashman have talked about the situation. “We’re still looking at it,” Steinbrenner said. “They were not happy with our offer and we were not happy with what they wanted. Anything is possible.”

San said that Hal did not seem particularly optimistic.

On other owners being critical of the Yankees’ spending spree: “If some owners are upset we invest in our team, I’m not going to lose any sleep over it.”

Mark Teixeira: Hal said the the only formal offer the Yankees made was the one Teixeira accepted back on Dec. 23. It came together quickly that day. So while Cashman met with Teixeira and Scott Boras, the only offer came on Dec. 23.
