GEORGE STEINBRENNER RUMORS

Today, let us acknowledge that George Steinbrenner is alive and well; he just has nothing to do with the Yankees

If you're a Yankee fan, and you don't know why so many people hate the Evil Empire - (or used to, anyway; a ,500 team weeds out haters) - here's the best way to visualize it:Think of the Dallas Cowboys.No, they don't have 27 world championships. What they have is Jerry Jones, the true heir of old George Steinbrenner.Not only is Jerry everything that George once was, he's also a groper...

George Steinbrenner Buys the Yankees

Midwesterners are a stoic lot; stereotypically speaking, they’re quiet but not timid. Theirs is a mission of doing a job without complaint, fanfare, and insolence. To be from the Midwest, certainly, is to have a work ethic in your DNA where seeking attention is not only unproductive, but also anathema. George Michael Steinbrenner III broke the Midwestern stereotype. When Steinbrenner...

Twenty five years since Billy the Kid left

Blink, and 25 years go by. Upon hearing the news, George Steinbrenner cried. They broke into network programming to announce it. Cardinal John O'Connor gave the eulogy. Richard Nixon attended. Thousands stood in the rain outside St. Patrick's Cathedral, unable to get to get in. They buried him in Hawthorne, NY, about 150 feet from the grave of Babe Ruth. And they inscribed his...

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...

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...
