Found June 04, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
  Hal Steinbrenner has broken his relative silence on all things Arod and has admitted the somewhat obvious. What may initially signal as another ‘Arod situation’ is actually a much needed breath of fresh air, as Hal Steinbrenner finally opened up about Arod. “There have no doubt been times when we’ve been disappointed in him and we’ve conveyed that to him and he understands that,…But look, everybody’s human and everybody makes mistakes. If you’ve got a guy over the course of 10 years, there’s going to be times any of us make mistakes … It’s a big contract,…We all hope he’s going to act like a Yankee and do the best to live up to it.” Steinbrenner is toeing a very dangerous line by opening up about Arod, with Biogensis clinic-gate still hanging over that massive contract. Arod issued no comment on the matter, stating that his sole focus is on his rehab stint and getting back onto the field–not surprising. Could this be just be the calm before an impending storm for Arod vs the Yankees? H/T: NBC Sports

He already had New York sports stars Robinson Cano, Victor Cruz and Geno Smith. Now, Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports could be on the verge of signing DeSean Jackson.

My 2013 All-Star Game Ballot

While I was watching the Yankees take down the Cleveland Indians last night (thanks, in part, to that thrilling grand slam by Mark Teixeira), I filled out my first (and probably last) All Star Ballot. For some reason, I'm not "into" voting this year. In fact, I'm not into the entire All Star Game experience this year. Perhaps it's because the festivities will...
