GEORGE STEINBRENNER RUMORS

Kevin Millar: George Steinbrenner flipped Red Sox double-bird in 2003

One of the most heartbreaking losses in franchise history for the Boston Red Sox came in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS, when Aaron Boone hit a solo home run off Tim Wakefield in the 11th inning to send the New York Yankees to the World Series. Can you guess who was there to rub Boston’s nose in it after the incredible series? George Steinbrenner. The Boss himself, of course. During an...

George Steinbrenner flipped off Red Sox bus after 2003 ALCS

Divisional rivals in MLB often act a lot like siblings who cannot stop beating up on one another. Such has long been the case between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox—two of the most storied franchises in the big leagues with a long history of mutual hatred. On this note, we bring to your attention a humorous history lesson. Speaking on the “Dan Patrick Show” Tuesday...

Pineda, Eovaldi strong in Yankees' victory

The New York Yankees have to be pleased with Monday’s performances from Michael Pineda and Nathan Eovaldi, as the young guns combined for five scoreless innings in the club’s 4-3 win against the Tampa Bay Rays at George Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. It is early, but there is reason to believe both pitchers can parlay strong spring performances into success during the regular...

Yankeetorial: Soon, we will learn just how much Hal Steinbrenner has come to loathe his father's favorite toy

The NBA announced yesterday that Knicks owner Jim Dolan - the veritable human definition of incompetence - won't face punishment for telling off a fan in an angry email, saying the great and mighty Knicks - currently 10-42 on the season, and 25 games out - don't want him.Soon, Hal Steinbrenner can get the same reaction out of the entire NY Yankee fan base. And he won't even have...

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...

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...

George Steinbrenner, The Play, coming to Broadway?

George Steinbrenner can't get into the Hall of Fame but...he just might make it to The Great White Way. Seems Roundabout Theatre Company produced a reading of Bill Madden's currently unavailable Steinbrenner: The Last Lion of Baseball last week. The Post's Michael Riedel reports:Richard Kind read the part of Steinbrenner and was “terrific,” says [play co-writer Ira] Berkow. Patrick...
