Yankees still pursuing Halladay

If you think Curtis Granderson is going to be the only big move of this offseason for the Yankees, then you don't know the Yankees. Even while finalizing a deal in which they gave up three prospects to complete a trade in principle for Granderson, the Yankees were continuing to talk - and talk some more - to Blue Jays officials about a trade for Roy Halladay, The Post has learned.

Payton frustrated with Bush

Sean Payton clearly grew frustrated with Reggie Bush near the end of the first half. First, Bush took a screen pass and nonchalantly stepped out of bounds short of the first down after a nine-yard gain. The Saints subsequently failed to convert the first down when Bush was tackled for a loss on third-and-1. Later, Bush was blown up and knocked off his feet by Brian Orapko as he attempted to run a route on a screen pass in the right flat, resulting in an incomplete pass. The play prompted Payton to demonstratively motion to Thomas to go into the game and replace Bush. Fox cameras caught Payton addressing an emotional Bush on the sidelines after the play.

Kelly talked to Irish before Pitt game

Brian Kelly didn't interview Tuesday in New York to become Notre Dame's next football coach. But then, Kelly already may have known enough about the job to take it. Kelly had a meeting last week about the opening with representatives of Notre Dame before Cincinnati's Big East championship game against Pittsburgh, the Tribune has learned. Talks progressed well enough that the official announcement Kelly will be Charlie Weis' replacement could come as early as Friday -- any time after Cincinnati's football banquet Thursday night.
