Welcome back Boss!

Apparently the Yankees winning their 27th World Series title wasn't enough for George Steinbrenner. He was actively involved in yesterday's meetings, talking strategy and payroll with Brian Cashman, Joe Girardi and the rest of the Yankee brass. Say what you will about Steinbrenner, but he wants to win more than any other owner in baseball (and any other sport for that matter) and will do whatever it takes to get there.

I think his involvement in the meetings is a good sign. It shows that despite his poor health, he feels strong enough to participate in the discussions. And as long as the Boss is still around, the Yankees will never get too conservative. Given his fiery desire to win, he will sign off on whatever move he thinks will put the Yankees on top again next year. He's not going to let a Roy "Doc" Halladay slip away just because the team's payroll is the highest in baseball.

Unlike other owners, Steinbrenner puts a lot of the money he makes back into his team. It's one of the reasons I don't often complain about the high costs of Yankee tickets and everything at the new stadium. Sure, Steinbrenner is a businessman, but the Yankees are his passion and he will spend whatever he has to spend to put them back on top.

Welcome back, Boss!
