RUMORS OF YANKEES MOVE TO NJ "BLOWN WAY OUT OF PROPORTION"

     Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner "insists" he has made no
decision where his team will play when his lease expires at
Yankee Stadium, according to today's N.Y. POST.  He did say,
however, that he wants to finalize plans "by this time next
year."  Regarding rumors that the Yankees and NJ were "closer to
some serious negotiating," Steinbrenner said that "has been blown
way out of proportion."  NJSEA Public Affairs Dir John Samerjan:
"There have been suggestions that in the last two weeks we have
formed The Plan with a capital 'T' and a capital 'P,' and it just
does not exist."  Joel Sherman writes, "All this is the latest
subtle -- but very real -- pressure tactic that Steinbrenner is
using in this high-stakes poker game" (N.Y POST, 9/22).
