    Alex Rodriguez is history with the Yankees and when I asked Hank Steinbrenner yesterday if there were any regrets, he answered quickly and honestly. “No,” he said. “[Scott] Boras makes it easy not to have any.”

    As for Boras’ contention that the Yankees may have lost their way in their “commitment” to winning, Hank said bluntly, “He’s full of [bull].”

    Hank went on to say the Yankees have never been more committed to winning and the goal is to get these Yankees to a time and place like 1996, when they had great young talent coming up through the system surrounded by winning veterans.

    “We’ll go out and spend the money where we have to,” he promised. “We want players with character on and off the field.”

    Good thing for Andrew Brackman that A-Rod opted out now – and not before this season. Sounds like Boras has now burned all his Bronx bridges.

      Anyone that believes teams should not deal with Scott Boras is an idiot. If the Yanks decide to shun Boras then they’re costing themselves the chance to acquire some of the best players in baseball or in the draft. They’d only be punishing themselves.

      No Scott, they’ve simply lost their desire to overpay.

      Just stop with the Yankee talk, Alex. We all know you and your demon spawn (agent) need us to up your price, but it’s not going to happen.

      Good for Hank and Cash. Stay strong, boys.
