Newsday -Yankees still eye Santana

"There's definitely still a possibility," Yankees senior vice president Hank Steinbrenner said by phone yesterday afternoon.

"The bottom line is, it's my decision," Hank Steinbrenner said, "but there's disagreement within the organization. I've got to keep everybody happy in the organization, including Brian ... That includes my partner, which is my brother."

"The payroll would just be out of this world this year," Steinbrenner said of potentially adding Santana, "but only for this year. When you've got to trade top young talent and pay a lot of money, it gets very risky."

"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."

Notes & quotes: Steinbrenner said the Yankees remain committed to having Joba Chamberlain in the starting rotation, and are not looking at him as a possible eighth-inning answer.

According to a Newsday story that just came out tonight, Hank Steinbrenner said the decision on whether to trade for Johan Santana is his alone.

The link to the story and all the quotes can be found at Yankees 'N More

Steinbrenner also said the Yankees would not give Santana an extension of more than 5 years, which is obviously significant.... And he spoke of what they expect Joba Chamberlain's role will be this year.
