From the Post via S.I.:
Word is, George Steinbrenner is blaming Billy Connors for allowing Leo Mazzone to use the Yankees to get a sweeter deal with the Orioles and has eliminated Connors, a friend of Mazzone’s, from meetings.
Big Stein is getting soft. In the old days, he would have made Connors drop down and give him twenty – followed by three laps.
Actually, is it such a bad thing that he got the O’s to spend more than they would have without the extra bidding from New York?
