New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner called a meeting in Tampa yesterday to question the team’s lack of player development. The meeting included general manager Brian Cashman, and various player development personnel including Mark Newman, Damon Oppenheimer, and Donny Rowland.
Considering the team has not had a top draft pick in 20 years, they have signed free agents, and traded away the few prospects that they have, its a wonder that they have produced any talent in their farm system. Sorry Hal, you can’t have it both ways. Either you restock your farm system with trades or you play the free agent game like the Yankees have played. It is not player developments fault that Cashman has pillaged the farm system.

In case you haven't heard, football is back at Yankee Stadium. It's too bad Joba Chamberlain doesn't know that the season doesn't start for a couple of weeks.

Well here’s a sentence I never thought I would type: Alfonso Soriano is the hard hittin’est of them all. And it’s hardly a sentence because there’s a word in there that isn’t in the English language (unless you speak Diamond Hogger).
