Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner continues to criticize next year's schedule that would have his team play two, three-game series against the Mets: "If [MLB Commissioner Bud] Selig isn't careful, he will disintegrate the traditional rivalries of baseball" (N.Y. POST, 7/17)....Selig said he "supports" the idea of "someday" putting an MLB team in Mexico. Selig: "I like the idea. There's no question we have to take this game international in a myriad of ways. Does that mean putting a team in Mexico? Ultimately" (BLOOMBERG NEWS, 7/16). CART NUMBERS: In Toronto, Gayle Macdonald examines sponsor support of CART's Molson Indy, which will be held this weekend and is expected to draw 170,000 fans. Although more than two-thirds of the spectators at the Molson Indy site are male, the "female participation rate is slowly growing." Of the men, 51% are in the 26-to-44 age group, and more than 35% of attendees make over C$75,000 a year. Macdonald: "All this spells major purchasing power, which has brought a new breed of sponsor" (GLOBE & MAIL, 7/17).
