Bri and Theo: Rivals... friends.

What in God's name is this about? A relationship? Yeesh. They bantered like Brad and Angelina in "Mr. and Mrs. Smith." All they needed was Star Jones and they'd have a quorum for the World Cutsie-Wootsie Society.

"I deal with all 28 teams," the Yankees' Cashman said with a wink when asked about his negotiating strategy, pointedly leaving out the 29th team, Boston. "Then, when I'm about to hang up with the 28th team, I say, 'Hey, do you know what Boston's up to?'"

"... Said with the wink....?"

Yeeeesh!

I hope nobody tells George Mitchell about this. Because baseball may have a far uglier problem than juicing. With these two oralizing in public, the game could get banned in Texas. How do we teach our children to hate Manny Ramirez when Cash and Eppie are co-mingling in some hot tub, staring at the stars and sharing Johnny Damon stories? We might as well learn that Dick Cheney plays poker with Osama on Tuesday.

Not that there's anything wrong with it, of course. (Insert wink.)

In fact, we at IT IS HIGH, before finishing our posts and going to bed, always say, "Hey, do you know what Yankee Muse is up to?"
