You Do The Math

George Steinbrenner admits that Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter is focused on success, but is he focused enough?

"He always gives 100 percent," Steinbrenner said today. "I need 110 percent. Let's put it this way."

And how does one do that, wonders Yankee manager Joe Torre?

As for Steinbrenner's mandate that Jeter give 110 percent, Torre was skeptical.

"As soon as you find out how to do that, let me know," Torre said. "I sort of shake my head when I hear people say 150 percent or 110 percent. I'm not sure there is more than 100 percent."

C'MON, Joe, you're the manager, you figure it out! After all, 90 percent of this game is half mental!
