A few links from around baseball…

[2]• If you haven’t already, be sure to read David Waldstein’s feature on Hal Steinbrenner’s approach to running the Yankees. [3] Terrific piece.

• Speaking of Steinbrenner, Mark Feinsand did a fun and interesting Q & A with the Yankees managing general partner [4]earlier this month.

• The Yankees won court order this afternoon preventing StubHub from opening a store near Yankee Stadium. [5] The store was intended to help StubHub work around the Yankees agreement with Ticketmaster.

• Major League Baseball could create a worldwide draft [6] as early as this season. Apparently MLB is willing to give up a lot [7] to make it happen.

• Baseball owners are reportedly considering the elimination of pensions [8]for non-uniform personnel.
