Dear Hank Steinbrenner...

...please keep messing with your GM. Poking Brian Cashman over the use of Joba Chamberlain, the fact that Johann Santana is a Met, and suchlike merely increases the probability that one of these days, the Yankees' GM is going to quit.

And if Cashman quits, one of the most appealing jobs available will be GM of the Philadelphia Phillies. Pat Gillick is stepping down after the 2008 season, concluding a run that can only be described as "better than Ed Wade's", leaving behind a team with a thin farm system but a killer infield and one of the largest media markets in the US all to itself. The elements for extended success are there, as is the opportunity.

As is the absence...of Hank.
