New York Yankee News: Block Quote Bonanza!

Mood Music - Heaven or Hell by Gamma Ray

When the writing sucks
And the readers are in pain
I use the block quote

As denoted by the above haiku, today is a day for the words of others.  (I actually use most of these words myself, the authors have just put them in a unique order.  The next time someone asks you to use your own words, show them up and invent your own language.)  We begin!

Eloquent, graceful, charming Hank Steinbrenner speaks

"We just have to [fudging] win," HankStein most notably opined.

"Look at the money we are paying out in revenue sharing. We are baseball's stimulus package. The fans of other teams have no reason to complain about us or the Red Sox or the teams that support the rest of baseball."

Brian Cashman calls Casey Close following Outfieldgate

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman had said that a possible move of Derek Jeter to the outfield is "not something we have to deal with right now," but that didn't stop him from reaching out to the shortstop's agent to explain comments he made Tuesday.

"I did talk to Casey Close," Cashman said Wednesday night, according to the New York Daily News. "He asked, 'Hey, what's going on?' Because they were receiving a lot of calls. And I explained everything to him. Hopefully I sufficed.

Brian Cashman is having a totally bonkers offseason

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman rolled up his sleeves on Wednesday night. But he wasn’t preparing to get down and dirty in contract negotiations.

He was stepping behind the bar at Foley’s in New York to serve as a celebrity bartender and help raise funds for prostate cancer research, according to a Yardbarker blog.

Curtis Granderson throws down some rugby

I finally had a chance to meet with some of the top rugby players in all of New Zealand today. While many other sports are popular such as cricket, softball and netball, rugby is without a doubt the sport that gets this nation going.

Extreme silliness

Texas Rangers CEO Chuck Greenberg could not convince Cliff Lee to re-sign with his team, but he thinks the organization ultimately kept the lefty ace from signing with the Yankees.

"Even though Philadelphia was probably not in, they were always in the back of our mind. I think if we wouldn't have gone to Arkansas that last time, I think he was going to sign with the Yankees. We pried the door open a little bit to give ourselves another opportunity. And ultimately the Phillies were able to take advantage of that opportunity that we created."

Lol, Bleacher Report

We have no clue what we're talking about.  None.
