As Yankees Continue To Lose, Changes Beg To Be Made

I have run out of words to describe the 2016 Yankees or at least any intelligible, decipherable ones. I’m also fresh out of any desire to continue to searching for explanations for what ails this $226 million team. I don’t want to think about the fact that this team ranks last in the American League in total bases, in XBH and, in what is perhaps a sign of just how unafraid...

The very real possibility of a Yankees sell-off – Part I

The New York Yankees have not been what could accurately be described as a “bad” team for 24 years. To put that into perspective, the last time it happened, Dellin Betances was four-years-old and Luis Severino was two years from being born. Yet here they are at 8-15, fresh off a demoralizing sweep in Boston at the hands of the Red Sox and looking the bizarre combination of inexperienced...

YES Network’s Dispute with Comcast Shows No Signs of Ending

In 2002, when George Steinbrenner launched the Yankees Entertainment and Sports (YES) Network, it had two primary slogans— “The Home of Champions” and “Where Yankee Fans Get Their Yankees.” This season at least, many aficionados of the Bronx Bombers in the Tri-State area will still be feeling the Pinstripe blue, and I do not mean Navy Blue either. YES Network, which airs...

Tampa Tribune praises Steinbrenner Field, says taxpayers should spend more

ShareThere was a very puzzling editorial in the Tampa Tribune on Saturday. Entitled “A home run for the economy“, the editorial praised the Yankees and the presence of Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. The premise of the article is that Steinbrenner Field was built with taxpayer money and has been a boon to the local economy, so taxpayers should feel ok with spending other tax dollars...

Money doesn’t matter for George Steinbrenner’s spiritual successor

LAKELAND, Fla. — Alan Trammell met George Steinbrenner once, “just briefly,” the should-be Hall of Fame shortstop said Sunday. “I don’t even know if he realized who I was at that particular time, early in my career,” he said. “But as fans of the game, everybody was aware of George.” The owner for whom Trammell...

Yankees fans, you're not getting rid of the Steinbrenners anytime soon

For many fans of the New York Yankees, having a Steinbrenner in charge of their club has been all they've known. George Steinbrenner bought the club in 1973 for $8.3 million and handed it over to his sons in 2008.But despite Forbes Magazine recently valuing the team at $3.2 billion -- second in sports only to Real Madrid ($3.26 billion) -- Yankees general managing partner Hal Steinbrenner...

Hal Steinbrenner says family won’t sell Yankees anytime soon

Former Yankee owner George Steinbrenner set the standard for hands-on ownership. The Boss was involved in everyone’s business, calling out players for bad weeks and firing managers for bad months. By comparison, Steinbrenner’s sons Hal and Hank are much less present, taking care of the team’s finances while mostly staying out of baseball operations. Apparently that more...

The Yankees have become cheap, and no one seems worried

Some time in the last few years, when no one was looking, the Yankees got cheap. Not ‘Marlins cheap’ or ‘Mets cheap,’ but cheap nonetheless. They spoke endlessly of getting under the luxury tax threshold, they let Robinson Cano walk away, they limited themselves to low-commitment trades last offseason and they declined to spend a dime in free agency this winter. You might...

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?

New York Yankees: harboring controversy while still making the team better

The New York Yankees front office seems to be channeling the ghost of George Steinbrenner with the acquisition of Aroldis Chapman. The question now becomes: Is it worth it? Most fans (including myself) say yes, one can look at the seventh, eight, and ninth innings and say that they now have the three most powerful relievers in the big leagues. All three pitchers were the only relievers...

Why Hal Steinbrenner is a gold-plated cheapskate

What If the Boss Were Still Here?

Following a small flurry of activity at the Winter Meetings that involved the Yankees acquiring Starlin Castro and trading away Adam Warren and Justin Wilson. Now that these moves have been dissected, reanimated with lightning and put down again, it’s time for some lighter fare and to think about what would happen if one of Yankees fans’ favorite pipe dreams were to come true...

Yankees could be for sale …and Donald Trump could be a buyer?
