All over the Inter-Google today, reporters and bloggers are making a big fuss over the fact that aging owner George Steinbrenner actually attended the New York Yankees organizational meetings Thursday.
The only writer I read this morning who actually had a unique take on Steinbrenner's presence was LoHud's Chad Jennings. He laid out the five things The Boss would have demanded if he was still really 'The Boss.' Let's just say the list includes Roy Halladay and Joe Mauer.
Speaking of Jennings, he also posted a well thought-out 'Thumbs up, thumbs down' to a lot of the Hot Stove ideas being tossed around.
ESPN's Jerry Crasnick gave his list of the top bargain-bin free agents. The guy on Crasnick's list I am most intrigued by? Ben Sheets. If the Yankees can't have Halladay or John Lackey. The guy is always an injury risk, but he is also a front of the rotation type starter when healthy.
