Let’s Do Lunch

Posted By Alex Belth On November 17, 2004 @ 9:44 am In Bronx Banter | Comments Disabled

Pedro Martinez [1] met with George Steinbrenner [2] yesterday in Florida. It was only a matter of time, right? It is not clear if Martinez and Steinbrenner [3] are using each other to drive up Pedro’s price-tag or if he has a sincere interest in playing for the Yankees next year. Yankee officials are said not to be attracted to Martinez, but that’s never stopped Steinbrenner [4] before. The Yankees could also be engaging in talks with Martinez to influence a possible deal with Arizona for Randy Johnson. So much posturing and so much time…John Harper [5] has a good take on the story today in the Daily News.

Meanwhile, Gary Sheffield [6] made the front page of the local tabloids today. Man, just say the word scandal these days and you are bound to see R. Kelly’s [7] name attached to it.
