The Outside Corner:
Business Insider is reporting on a rumor they heard from TrimTabs blogger Dan Dorfman, saying that Yankees owners Hank and Hal Steinbrenner could be "amenable to a deal", in light of the Los Angeles Dodgers selilng for $2 billion.
While owning the Yankees is a guaranteed cash cow (the team brought in $435 million in revenue last year), selling the team could result in a financial windfall that could set the Steinbrenners up for generations. Analysts project a possible Yankees sale at between $3 and $4 billion, which would also include the team's 34% stake in the YES Network.
Despite Forbes's evaluation of the Yankees being worth $1.85 billion, the sale of the Dodgers for more than 30% more than the $1.4 billion evaluation Forbes gave them this season shows that there is a willingness to pay a premium based on the "brand" as opposed to the raw team itself. And there is no better brand in sports than the New York Yankees and their 40 pennants and 27 World...

From Mark Hale:The way things looked for Andy Pettitte after yesterday’s minor league outing, it seemed possible he would need just two more starts before rejoining the Yankees. Pettitte’s return to the major league seemed imminent, meaning Phil Hughes might get just two more turns to solve his woes.
Both Pettitte and Hughes, however, will be getting more time.
One of the early surprises of the season is the offensive output of Derek Jeter. Going into tonight’s matchup against Minnesota, Jeter is hitting a robust .366 with 2 HRs and 6 RBI. The slow bat that turned him into a below league average hitter the last couple of years has disappeared. I was ready to see him get his 3,000th hit and start the countdown of when his contract will...

Jury selection in the Roger Clemens perjury case was temporarily put aside Wednesday as the two sides argued over the scope of testimony that former teammate Andy Pettitte can provide.
The detour was the latest delay in picking a jury, which U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said probably won't be completed until next week.
Pettitte is expected to testify that Clemens acknowledged...

Siena, in Loudonville, N.Y., says it chose to give the doctorate degree to Jeter “in recognition of his leadership, accomplishments on the baseball field and dedication to improving the lives of young people through his Turn 2 Foundation.” “It means a lot to me, it means a lot to my family for a lot of the work that we’ve done,”...

Some sites give you their immediate takes on just-completed games. I believe in taking a moment (or full night) to compose my thoughts.
The New York Yankees last night won the rubber game of their first series with the Pujolsian Edition of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. None of the games were particularly great, nor is there much to extrapolate based on the performances we saw...
