GEORGE STEINBRENNER RUMORS

Yankees' controversial, colorful Billy Martin died 25 years ago in Christmas accident

Billy Martin was a New York Yankee. He personified the Bronx Bombers --  colorful, controversial, a fighter, battler, scrapper. Martin played with the team for parts of seven years of his big league career, a second baseman on some of the great teams. He then managed the Yankees and managed to create one of the great reality soap operas with owner George Steinbrenner. Martin was...

George Steinbrenner Legacy Lives On Through Fallen Officers

The tragic events yesterday in New York involving the senseless deaths of two NYPD officers force us to realize that life isn’t always solved on a baseball diamond. Life is bigger than sport and unfortunately is always seems to take a tragedy to appreciate that. George Steinbrenner understood this and made a difference in the lives of many affected families, a legacy that continues...

Yankees to Pay for Education of Slain NYPD Officer Kids

This is a foundation that George Steinbrenner set up years before his death and it is for a great cause. If people could stop bickering for a moment and remember there are children, family and friends that are suffering more than we can even imagine. Regardless of how someone dies, their family suffers and we should have them in our prayers and do what we can to support them in...

The weirdness of waking up to find Billy Madden make sense

Over the years, I've railed on the reigning Gammonite of the Daily News, Billy Madden - the reincarnated corpse of Dick Young - for his suck-up relationship with Yankee suits who turn out to be the reincarnated corpses of Murray Cook and Bill Bergesch. By that, I am referring to the two early 1980s GMs whose tap-dancing for George Steinbrenner edged the franchise into The 14-Year...

George Steinbrenner, Jerry Lucas, and the NBA in Cleveland?

You know the NBA planted its flag in Cleveland in 1970, with the inaugural season of the Cavaliers. Unlike me, you may also have known that Cleveland was this close to joining the NBA less than ten years earlier. By the end of the 1950s, the National Industrial Basketball League had been in operation for over ten seasons. Originally formed as a league for mill workers, the teams...

Hal Steinbrenner finally speaks, and shows that he couldn't manage a one-car funeral

So Hal (Rip Van Winkle) Steinbrenner has finally woken from his summer slumber and spoken to the media for the first time in two months. He talked to Michael Kay on the Yankee broadcaster's ESPN New York radio show yesterday, a day after I wondered where the heck Hal was. But I think Hal would have made a much better impression by doing the interview in person, given that Kay's show...

George Steinbrenner Should Be In The Hall Of Fame

George Steinbrenner was known for his controversial ways during his 37-year tenure as owner of the New York Yankees (via nymag) If there is any owner who deserves to be in the Baseball Hall of Fame, it has to be George Steinbrenner. He changed the way owners run their teams. Steinbrenner was a very involved owner. No one had been like that up to that point. Most owners before Steinbrenner...

New York Yankees: Steinbrenner Philosophy on Winning is Flawed

The Steinbrenner family has been running the New York Yankees since 1973 when George purchased the team from CBS.  From George, onto Hal, their “philosophy” on winning has remained the same: buy the best players money can get and you will win World Series championships. There’s just one problem with that approach, it doesn’t exactly lead to winning titles. For those who...

Finally reaching the $189 million crossroads, the Yankees apparently will let others determine the future

Hal Steinbrenner sabotaged the 2013 Yankees. At the time, it seemed a worthy cause. If the Yankees could shrink their bloated $230 million payroll to $189 million, they would escape a huge luxury tax. Eventually, they could sign a Bryce Harper or Mike Trout, or even both. One year at $189 million, that's all they needed, and then they could spend, spend, spend... with impunity. If...
