A person familiar with the negotiations said yesterday that "something could happen by end of the week" that would preclude Benson, one of the team's key midseason acquisitions last summer, from bolting after just two months on the field with the Mets.
But while Down acknowledged he met with George Steinbrenner last week to smooth over the controversy surrounding his desire to join Willie Randolph with the Mets, he said as of yesterday the Yankees still had not officially granted him permission to speak with the Mets.

 Encyclopedia article on New York Yankees [EncycloZine]
As a result of a feud with league president Ban Johnson, who rigidly enforced rules about rowdyism on the field of play, McGraw jumped leagues to manage the New York Giants in the middle of the 1902 season.
Consequently the field was known as Hilltop Park and the team became known as the New York Highlanders.
The trend continued after the 2003 World Series, culminating when the Yankees traded for the nominal "best player in baseball", Alex Rodriguez, in February 2004.

Pavano, who turns 29 next month, went 18-8 for the Florida Marlins last season after dominating the Yankees in Game 4 of the 2003 World Series.
Signing Pavano would be a coup for the Yankees, although some people in baseball questioned whether a pitcher with a 57-58 career record was worth almost $10 million a season.
Carl Pavano was 18-8 with a 3.00 E.R.A. for Florida last season.

Steve is recovering from surgery on his left index finger on Nov. 11, the same injury that kept him off the World Series roster, and while the New York Yankees have expressed interest in Kline, it's highly unlikely he will sign with them this soon after his surgery.
After a disappointing 2003 season where it appeared Kline lost his mind, complaining of not knowing his role and lacking motivation, this season was a major turn around for him lowering his ERA from 3.82 down to 1.79 this season.
Kline had missed almost all of September with a groin injury and torn tendon in his finger and we supported the Cardinals decision to leave Kline off the post season roster.

 If You Were a Starter Here, You Can Make It Anywhere - New York Times
Pettitte left after the 2003 season, partly because the Yankees handled his free agency in a clumsy and apathetic manner.
When Pettitte became a free agent after the 2003 season he had to decide whether to leave the only team he had known in his nine-year major league career.
Not long after Pettitte signed with Houston, the Yankees were stunned to see Clemens, who had presumably just retired as a Yankee, sign with the Astros, too, so he could pitch with his friend.
