The New York Yankees have suspended top prospect Jorge Mateo for two weeks, costing him the opportunity to play in the Futures Game on Sunday in San Diego.

But the real story is the possible reason for the discipline -- a throwback to the old-school, no-nonsense days of George Steinbrenner.

According to the New York Post, the Yankees' decision could have stemmed from Mateo recently voicing his displeasure about not being promoted to Double-A Trenton.
