Yankee empire in transition?

Fortune has a story today on what could be a big change in the baseball landscape if any of this is true.

The New York Yankees' cable network, the YES Network, is for sale, Fortune has learned. And some baseball insiders and Yankees limited partners are wondering whether the team itself might be next.

Also - one of my old partner's in crime, SI's John Donovan, writes about the best GM in baseball. After Mark Teixteira hit a homer and drove in four RBI last night is there even a question?

From the how dumb can someone be department:

A newspaper reporter who said Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick would have been "better off raping a woman" than being charged with dogfighting has apologized and will no longer appear on the local sports panel TV show where he made the remark.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter Paul Zeise made the comments Sunday night on the "Sports Showdown" show on KDKA-TV, a CBS affiliate. He was disagreeing with another panelist who said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell should suspend Vick for the rest of the season because he was indicted on federal dogfighting charges July 17.

And finally - from the picture says a thousand words department ... YIPPIE!!!!!!!
