According to Ken Rosenthal, Jarrod Washburn isn't likely to land in the Bronx.
Over at the Times, Harvey Araton has a blog post on former Yankee announcer, Tony Kubek, who talks about why he walked away from broadcasting in 1994:
"I had two years remaining on my contract with MSG at the time," Kubek said. "But it struck me that day that I just didn't want to be in or around baseball anymore. I remember that I called Bob Gutkowski, who was my boss, and I told him that I wasn't going to finish the contract. He said, `Wait a minute, that's pretty good money you're going to walk away from,' but I had made up my mind and that was it.
"Part of it was that I didn't like what was happening in the game, or what was going to happen. But part of it was that I had been around baseball my whole life. Everyone around me had been in baseball. I decided I didn't want to be in it anymore, to go home and spend time with my family. I said goodbye, and that was it. I haven't seen a major league game since I retired, even on television. I've never seen Derek Jeter play, though I do recall seeing him work out when he was very young and still in the minor leagues."
Kind of hard to imagine never having watched Jeter isn't it? Good stuff from Araton.
