Hal Steinbrenner Met With Scott Boras About Edwin Jackson

Future Yankee?

Uhoh.

Hal Steinbrenner met with Scott Boras last off-season, and that resulted in the horrible contract that was the Rafael Soriano signing. Now, the two have met again, this time to discuss starting pitcher Edwin Jackson.

There are some factors that make me worry less about this:

-Jackson would fill an actual need for the Yankees.

-Steinbrenner might have learned from his mistake.

-Jackson has solid numbers and does not look like the type of pitcher that would be a total bust in the Bronx.

Then again, there are some factors that make me worry a lot about this.

-The report made it seem like Brian Cashman was not present for the meeting.

-I was under the impression that Cashman had full control of the team, including meetings with potential players and agents.

-Again, last time Steinbrenner and Boras met the result was the Soriano contract.

-Steinbrenner has said before he is a little worried about the rotation, so he is more prone to making a mistake.
