We Intercept Letters!

DRAFT – DECEMBER 17TH 2005 (FOR EYES ONLY)

Dear Brian:

In light of the long-term financial commitment I made to you this offseason, I wanted to let you know that after review with the team’s counsel (the firm of Saymol, Saymol, and Thensome), I am giving you some additional authorities and resources with regards to the management of the team.  Some might think I have relaxed my grip on the team foolishly, but I think you’ll be pleased – I consider this team yours as well.  Your new powers and resources are as follows:

  • ability to conduct warrantless wiretapping of AL East rival front offices
  • x-ray vision.  (Just kidding, there’s no such thing!)
  • limited edition Derek Jeter Pez dispenser
  • team to pay for monthly cell phone service, up to 600 minutes.  Beyond that, it’s yours.
  • Lucchino’s private email address
  • $50M to spend on Johnny Damon. $52M if Boras plays tough.

If there’s anything else that you might need, please call Shirley and set up a meeting.

Best,

Mr. Steinbrenner

  • Hey, if Larry had written a nice note like that I’d still be a Red Sock!
