NY Yankees Miss on Yoan Moncada

As owner of the New York Yankees, George Steinbrenner was known for his win-at-all-costs approach. While his voracious spending bothered some purists who bemoaned the idea of the Yankees buying their championships, it was a fairly successful strategy. New York won 13 division titles and five World Series during the last two decades of The […]

Major League Baseball finally did it: It has destroyed the once dominant franchise known as the New York Yankees

Congratulations, MLB. You won. For 50 years, you envied the NFL on key element: Pro football had no Yankees. If only you could destroy the one franchise that dominated all others, make all the teams equal, then you could maximize profits. Your plan was so tight, so clean, so perfect: Apply Ayn Rand capitalism to the revenue side, and assign the expenses to socialism. No limits...

Mets Should Cherish Own History And Forget Yankees

I keep reading how this is the time for the New York Mets to “take control of the city and make this their town.’’ That’s an impossible venture based on history as the Yankees have a huge head start. I’ve been told this was once a National League town, but how can this be if the Yankees usually won? METS: Their own history is pretty good. (MLB) Math says the Yankees have...

My Favorite Spring Training Memories

For a baseball writer spring training can be a magical time. My first was in 1991, when I covered the Orioles. There was also time in Florida with the Yankees and Mets. All produced keeper memories, which flooded back this morning. Things weren’t as stressful with the Orioles, mostly because there was myself and two or three other writers. We showed up early, got our stories, wrote...

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...

Right or wrong, the Ty Hensley attack has me remembering Brien Taylor

In an alternative universe - remarkably close to here - the greatest all-time Yankee lefty is a fellow named... Whitey Ford. (Nope, some things don't change.) But the runner-up, freshly bronzed last summer in Monument Park, is the great Brien Taylor. Sherman, set the Wayback for 1991: The Yankees are terrible, the worst-run organization in humanity.  George Steinbrenner is a national...

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...

The Dearth of Personality

Since the passing of George Steinbrenner in 2010, Major League Baseball has been lacking a certain something, as if the audial landscape in baseball has been a little too quiet. Too often, the sound bites offered up by the majority of MLB players and managers devolve into hackneyed banalities, tortured metaphors, and clichéd baseball-oriented generalities. It’s enough for one...

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...

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...

Yankees to Pay for Slain NYPD Officer’s Kids’ Education

For most baseball fans, it’s really, really easy to dislike the New York Yankees. Fortunately, right now is not one of those times. Saturday, New York police officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were gunned down in cold blood, seemingly as retaliation for the choking death of Eric Garner at the hands of police officers back in July. But with the senseless deaths of Ramos and Liu...

NO PENNANTS, NO PEACE: If Hal Steinbrenner is more interested in being pennywise than winning the World Series, it's time for a fan revolution

Friends, Romans, Yankeefans...As we end another cruel year, it's time to ponder a deeper question than where Brett Gardner should bat in 2015.

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...
