The Daily Yankeeland

Roger Clemens has completed his 60 Minutes interview with Mike Wallace, and needless to say, we are skeptical that anything new will come out of this fluff piece. Newsday's Shaun Powell has his take on it and he's more cynical about it than us.

Just to clarify a misconception about Jim Leyritz. No, he's still a putz. It's not that. But Leyritz's license in Florida was not suspended as some media outlets had reported. His Florida license was no longer good in NYC. Either way he's up shit's creek.

One more thought (does it ever end) from Hank Steinbrenner concerning Roger Clemens-

"I'm not signing Clemens," Steinbrenner, the Yankees' senior vice president, said in a telephone interview yesterday.

"Andy (Pettitte) is (signed) for one year and he's only 35 and he knows how to pitch in the big games," Steinbrenner said. "Roger does, too, but let's face it, he's going to be 46 (in August).

"Pettitte is just as good with the young pitchers, though Clemens was great with the young kids last year. I don't think Roger is going to come back anyway."

Now if we could only believe anything Hank says.

Can't wait until there are some actual baseball related stories going on.
