    From Newsday

    “I’m going to be very active in spring training,” the Yankees’ principal owner said through his industrious spokesman, Howard Rubenstein. “I go to work every single day. I’ll be in the locker room. I’ll be on the field. I’ll be very active.”

    Every breath you take
    And every move you make
    Every bond you break, every step you take
    Stein’ll be watching you

    Every single day
    And every word you say
    Every game you play, every night you stay
    Stein’ll be watching you

    Oh, can’t you see
    You belong to me?
    How my poor heart aches
    With every step you take
    Every move you make
    Every vow you break
    Every smile you fake, every claim you stake
    Stein’ll be watching you

      Isn’t George supposedly getting a bit senile (and I’m not trying to joke about it?) Isn’t that why his son-in-law is more involved?

      If so, take him to where the rookie-ball players are, so he won’t disturb the major league club (ok, I had to put in one joke.)

      On the contrary, I always thought it would’ve been better if George had paid more attention to his Tampa A league team as well as his other minor league affiliates…it might have given him a better perspective on the oodles of cashola he spent..er…misspent over the years. With Gene Michael as GM in the early ’90s, the Yankees might have discovered Moneyball (the economic plan not the allegedly sabermetric approach)years before Double B.

      If you think about it, they discovered the importance of OBP, when they traded Kelly for O’Neill, and bought in Boggs to replace Hayes, among other things…

      But I agree that Stein needs to pay more attention to the minors. Given the money he spends, the Yank system should be head and shoulders above everyone else in MLB.
