Newsday's Kat O'Brien spoke with HankenStein yesterday and discussed the Yankees never-ending non-pursuit of the mythical creature Johan Santana. In addition to expressing worry about the fabled Johan's on-again/off-again love triangle with Cinderella and and the tooth fairy, Hank actually did say something of note -
"I wouldn't do it if it were a six- or seven-year contract," Steinbrenner said. "I wouldn't go past five, on an extension."
Deadlines, ultimatums and now maximum extension lengths...does Hank EVER shut up?
