Selig on The Boss: 'We were allies and friends'

Commissioner Bud Selig has issued his statement on the death of George Steinbrenner, calling the late Yankees owner "a giant of the game."

MLB is reportedly planning a press conference featuring Derek Jeter and other Yankees prior to tonight's All-Star Game in Anaheim and will have a moment of silence for Steinbrenner. Tributes continue to pour in on Steinbrenner's death, rounded up in this blog post from the New York Daily News that includes the words of Yogi Berra.
