The Yankees have been having their organizational meetings in Tampa today and apparently George Steinbrenner was in the house during some of the conversations.
At this point in his life, The Boss isn’t the commanding presence that he once was but it’s nice to hear that he was at least in the room as the planning for No. 28 heats up. Of course, if Steinbrenner were his old self, you can only imagine what the directives to Brian Cashman would have been:
1. Trade for Halladay
2. Sign Holliday
3. Sign Lackey
4. Force a deal for King Felix
5. Start pushing to get Mauer
Oh, and the Boss would have wanted all of that done yesterday.
