IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
The Kansas City StarNovember 28Dear Editor, I recently read with amazement an open letter of apology issued by New York Yankees owner Hank Steinbrenner to the fans of his baseball franchise, describing his disappointment in the 2012 season and promising changes for the 2013 season.Keep in mind this season was one that saw the Yankees win 95 games and make it to the American League Division Series.I certainly am not a big fan of the Yankees, but how could anyone not be envious of the team owner’s obvious commitment to high expectations and the 27 world championships?Can anyone remember seeing a similar letter of disappointment by either Clark Hunt or David Glass recently?Steve MeyersRaytown

Rodriguez has a torn labrum, bone impingement and a cyst, the Yankees said Monday. The third baseman will need to follow a pre-surgery program over the next four-to-six weeks, and the team anticipates he will be sidelined four-to-six months after the operation...
During the general managers' meetings last month, Brian Cashman was asked about his plans for a player recovering from surgery.
"In fairness to him and the significant injury he had, we're going to put him off to the side," the Yankees GM said of starting pitcher Michael Pineda, who is coming off shoulder surgery. "His rehab will take him into late May, June...
I'm looking at a reflection of myself, or should I say, of Yankees, 2012?Is it true that A-Rod is turning the other hip? When he does come back ( think September, 2013 ) will he be his usual svelte and speedy self?Will he be ready for the double-headers and 11 game trips to the coast?Are we looking to pay $26 million to watch him limp around? Again?I do understand that this...
