Found May 25, 2012 on No Guts, No Glory:
PLAYERS: Bud Selig
TEAMS: New York Yankees
Just in case you’re behind on this whole “are the Yankees for sale?” saga, let’s recap. Late Wednesday a report surfaced from the NY Daily News that the Steinbrenner family was exploring selling the Yankees. Of course, Yankees brass denied that such a thing has or could ever happen. But the denials did not stop the Daily News from trudging along in their coverage of a sale that may never happen. Now, that you’re up to speed, let’s delve into the latest fallout from the report. It comes from Yankees COO Lonn Trost, who thinks that even though the Yankees have offered their denial, that’s not enough. More needs to be done. And in his opinion, he thinks that Bud Selig and MLB should investigate the Daily News and take “appropriate action”. Trost let his ridiculous thoughts be known during an appearance on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton Show.” Trost was pursuing the “nuclear” option during a Thursday appearance on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton Show.” Norman Julius Esiason said

Yankees Sale Would Make Sense

Geroge Steinbrenner once compared the Yankees to the Mona Lisa. “Once you own it, you never sell it.” Apparently, his children did not always pay attention to his lessons.

Selig Says No More Replay and Hints at Retirement

With every year and almost with every game, comes talk of more MLB instant replay. As the Associated Press reports, Bud Selig says, no more, at least for now. The occasional viewer seems to want more replay. The purest seems to not want to expand. Bottom line, as the other sports go more and more in the replay direction, MLB may just be forced to follow suit. Replay and retirement...

Yankees Game 45 Lineup: 05/25/12

On the road again, the Yankees travel for a stint in the West coast, beginning with a three-game set against the Oakland A’s. The Yankee offense picked it up slightly in their last game against the Royals, but it seems like they still don’t have any offensive consistency this season. Still seeking a win-streak longer than four games, maybe the Yankees can find their swings in...

Since rumors are out, I've decided to create a list with ten possible new owners for the New York Yankees: 10.) The Soup Nazi (Seinfeld): This should be fun to watch. You struck out?, no more soup for you. You gave up a home run?, no more soup for you. But that's pretty much it. 9.) Indiana Jones: The guy is a badass, an educated badass. Among other things, he would be...

Three homers carry Yankees to win at Oakland

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Considering the New York Yankees began Friday's game with 2,023 more career homers in their lineup than the Oakland A's had in theirs, the night's result should have been no surprise. The Yankees hit three homers, including a pair of two-run blasts, on their way to a 6-3 victory. The A's hit two homers, but both were solo shots. New York'...
