Statement from The Boss

Sorry for the back-to-back posts, but this e-mail popped in about 30 seconds after I hit send on the last post.

Here’s a statement from George Steinbrenner – via spokesman Howard Rubenstein – on the Yankees advancing to the ALCS:

“As we move on to the ALCS, our team’s focus remains the same. With the support of the greatest fans in the world, we will continue to march forward as we have done all year.”

It’s possible that The Boss will make a NY appearance during the ALCS, though I think it’s more likely we’ll see him if the Yankees make the World Series. Jennifer Steinbrenner was among the officials watching the clubhouse celebration in Minneapolis last night.

UPDATE, 1:20 p.m.: I’ve heard from a number of people who have said they’ve heard/seen reports about a game at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. That sounds about right to me – maybe first pitch itself is closer to 8 – but I want to hold off posting a schedule until MLB makes it official. You never know what Selig and his crew are going to come up with (like, say, a World Series that doesn’t end until November …)
