GEORGE STEINBRENNER RUMORS

The hyped hair that captivates — and tests? — Yankees camp

TAMPA — The most tired cliché around the Yankees is this: “If The Boss were alive, this wouldn’t have happened.’’ Of course, George Steinbrenner has been gone since 2010, and the rules regarding how a team is constructed have changed. However, had The Boss seen Clint Frazier’s flowing mess of red hair when the outfield...

Gossage says Steinbrenner, Miller should be in Hall of Fame

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Rich Gossage says late New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and former players' union head Marvin Miller should join him in Hall of Fame. Steinbrenner, the bombastic and successful owner of the Yankees from 1973 until his death in 2010, failed to gain election in a vote by the Today's Game Era Committee in December. He also fell short on 2010 and 2013 Expansion...

Yankees’ ‘Core Four’ admit they were all terrified of George Steinbrenner

The “Core Four” members of the New York Yankees admitted in a recent chat that George Steinbrenner ruled the team by fear back in the 1990s. Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada, and Andy Pettitte chatted for the Players’ Tribune recently, and Steinbrenner’s tactic of ruling by intimidation came up. “We had fun, but that didn’t mean we weren’t always on our toes...

What would George Costanza have traded to get Bonds and Griffey?

Full disclosure: I’m a Seinfeld freak. I can recite episodes verbatim and I usually don’t have any problem using a line from the show to describe something happening in my every day life. It’s a gift. So as both a Seinfeld freak and a baseball freak, I’ve always enjoyed the episodes where the two intermingled. One episode is 1996’s “The Caddy” when George locks his...

Joe DiMaggio lawyer blocking hit streak bobblehead night

On the 75th anniversary of the famed 56-game hitting streak, the New York Yankees had planned to honor Joe DiMaggio.

The team and DiMaggio’s lawyer, Morris Engelberg, could not agree on arrangements. Engelberg denied...

Lockdown Bullpen 2016: Remembering When The Yankees Tried It Before

George Steinbrenner thought of it first: put together a lockdown bullpen and shorten the game. Well, at least that seems to be what he was thinking. In the off season following the 1977 championship run, the year that Yankee reliever and closer, Sparky Lyle, won the Cy Young award (which struck a blow for relief pitchers everywhere), Steinbrenner wasn't satisfied. Already armed...

Eight best MLB spring training stadiums

Rejoice baseball fans, MLB spring training is just 30 days away! No professional sports preseason is looked forward to as much as MLB spring training is. Why? Well for starters, all 30 teams sojourn to either Arizona or Florida and spend about a month in the much warmer climate than their cities are use to- for the most part. This makes for a perfect time for all fans to ditch...

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...

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...
