    Exactly - the Yankees might also be greasing the skids to run Cash out.

    Randy Levine is also very tight with the Rubenstein family, and he's not above planting a story.

    Not saying they want Cash out, but when the PR guy for team and the paper are the same person, you can't just look at every story objectively.

    I'll give them credit here (if it really is Cashman), definitely thought tmz would beat them on this.

    Right. Because it did the Yankees tons of good to have A-Rod all over the front page with a pole dancer. You know, a million years ago the Yankees did gather information on their stars, then used it against them at contract time.

    But in 2011, A-Rod is still making $32 million, so I'm not sure why the Yankees would be interested in having their brand tarnished on the front page of a tabloid.

    And I'm not sure why it's better to throw the team's star under the bus instead of the GM. Do they have Brian Cashman poster day? If the Yankees have proven anything over the years, it's that GMs are pretty disposable.

    I love conspiracy theories, too, but they work best when there's a thread of logic.
