Don't know if it's true but I did hear a rumor. A guy I know said...
In the off season, the Yankees are expected to do some serious power shopping. Rumor has it they're going to buy the entire Milwaukee Brewers pitching staff if the Brewers throw in a beer company and a couple hundred live taxpayers. It's also rumored they've found the wreck of an unusual flying vehicle in Nevada and the six survivors, four of which they've already signed, are five tool players that don't require water. Came at a price.
Final number on the 2009 roster is expected to reach the GNP of three European countries combined. He didn't tell me which three but he said it was reliable information that came to him from Copenhagen.
Oh, and there's high level talks about cloning Joe Torre by 2012.
What have you heard?
