1. To Sell Or Not To Sell
First we had the Daily News report that the Steinbrenners were putting out feelers about selling the Yankees. Then we had vigorous denials from Hal Steinbrenner, Randy Levine and Lonn Trost, plus a comment from MLB. Probably much ado about nothing but it made for good copy on an otherwise blah news day.
2. Chad Curtis Emerges From Obscurity (And Not In A Good Way)
According to the AP, the former Yankee has been accused of sexual misconduct by two teenage girls who are students at the Michigan high school where he’s supposed to become the football coach. My most vivid memory of him is when he and Jeter got into a fight about fraternizing with opposing players (Chad was not in favor of it) and the next thing I knew he was gone. Which is what happens when you mess with Jeter.
3. Another Player Testifies In The Clemens Case
Former Oriole David Segue corroborated McNamee’s claims about the Rocket in today’s installment of a trial I don’t much care about. I can’t imagine the prosecutors getting a conviction out of this case so it’s a waste of everybody’s time and money. I’m just glad Pettitte didn’t have to hang around in DC and get dragged down by it all.
In other news, I went shopping instead of watched a baseball game this afternoon, which was dangerous for my bank account. It’s much safer when I’m home in front of the TV.
Here’s to a great series in Oakland.
