Yankees owner Steinbrenner: AL East ‘still ours to lose’

The New York Yankees have gone from being firmly in control of the AL East to finding themselves in a Battle Royal with the Toronto Blue Jays for division supremacy. But Hal Steinbrenner, the team’s principal owner, managing general partner and co-chairman, doesn’t seem overly concerned about it … or the Yankees owner is at least not willing to give the impression that the...

YANKS STAND BY TRUMP

Yankees Owner Hal Steinbrenner, who co-hosted the [Hank’s Yanks Golf Classic at the new Trump golf course] stood by Trump... saying that he's been 'a loyal friend. And I'm loyal to my friends.' Ugh.By the way, doesn't Hank look terrible?

My thoughts on the state of the Yankees, the A-rod milestone deals, and other assorted shenanigans

Looks like I missed two of the best Yankee games this year, in Friday's and Saturday's epic walkoff wins, the first two walkoff wins of 2015 for the Bombers! Back in 2009, I was at the first "pie game' that May, and the Yanks seemed to start to have an aura again about them. That aura translated into ring #27.I am still not sold on this current team being a World Series winner, even...

Hal Steinbrenner to fans: Don't worry. Come June, we'll once again trade our future for a bunch of over-the-hill salary dumps

Yesterday, as the Yankees continued their new tradition - "the Memorial Day Collapse" - boy-owner Hal "I'm Not Cheap" Steinbrenner took to his media soapbox to assure fans that the franchise has learned absolutely nothing from the last two years, and that it will continue the July trade deadline practice of larding up with useless contracts in pursuit of a respectable mediocrity...

Steinbrenner on A-Rod: 'He's been a great asset'

NEW YORK (AP) Now that Alex Rodriguez is back on the field and producing, the New York Yankees have put all the acrimony behind. Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner is pleased with A-Rod's performance in his return from a season-long drug suspension. The 39-year-old, shifted to primarily designated hitter, began Wednesday with a .248 batting average, and his 10 homers and 22 RBIs were...

"The Yankees may be baseball’s marquee franchise, with their record 27 World Series championships, a rich history and a fan base that has tentacles reaching every pocket of the country. But this season, the Yankees have been baseball’s least popular attr

Last night, 31,871 Kansas Citians turned out to watch two divisional leaders go at it. The seats at Kaufman Stadium were 84 percent full.Not bad. I mean... let's face it: The Yankees don't have a big farewell tour going this year, and there are only so many times you can watch a nostalgia act before the songs get tiresome and the wigs fall off. Folks aren't turning out in droves...

Has A-Rod finally met the Babadook?

Let the record show that Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez outlasted Bud Selig, George Steinbrenner, Curt Schilling, Willie Mays and even Derek Jeter. He's still out there - hands down, the greatest ballplayer of his generation - bating third for all to see. And someday - maybe decades from now, after the indignation and anger has settled down - A-Rod will be defined, if not appreciated...

Bernie to retire Friday; what's keeping Beltran?

The battle for ink in NYC is so bleak that the Yankees are now staging rank publicity stunts to capture attention. What's next? Hal Steinbrenner wearing dresses? Suzyn dating Kanye? Those back page headlines don't write themselves. Friday, Bernie Williams will step to the podium and announce his retirement. Not from music. From baseball. It's a joke, get it? Bernie has never officially...

Will Hal Steinbrenner now ignore the "pitching version of Yoan Moncada?"

Listen carefully around the owner's box in Yankee Stadium, and you'll wonder if a certain somebody hasn't hatched a box of Easter chicks. Everyone, you'll hear the cute little sounds, "Cheep, cheep, cheep..."It must be the squeaky shoes of Hal "I'm Not Cheap" Steinbrenner, the business-minded scion of a family that needs both sets of fingers to count its billions.

There are dim bulbs in the Yankees' front office ... oops, I meant at Steinbrenner Field

Another quick ICYMI: The Yankees have embarrassingly dim lights at their spring training stadium, George M. Steinbrenner Field.Apparently Hal Steinbrenner doesn't believe in wasting money on new, young, unproven lights. He'd rather spend his money on older lights that once shone brightly, in the hope that they can one day return to their former brightness.It's kind of his philosophy...

"I found (being called cheap) very interesting," Steinbrenner said, smiling. We need a better word to describe him. How about "good loser."

We gotta stop calling Hal Steinbrenner "cheap." It makes him snicker. He thinks it's, like, oh, wow, man... "very interesting." The Dude abides.Cheap? That's a nickel word. Hal's no cheapo. I bet at the yacht club, he's one of the top tippers.  Nobody accuses him of skimping on clam dip. "Cheap?" That's a funny one.How about "scrappy." After all, the Yankees love to pick...

The questions Bill Madden neglected to ask Hal Steinbrenner in his exclusive interview

It's payback time! New York Daily News MLB columnist Bill Madden has snagged what is billed as an "exclusive" interview with Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner. But despite that access, the interview is a real snoozer. And there are many unanswered questions here -- both in lack of follow-ups to Hal's points, as well as in questions that are never raised in the first place.So I decided...

World may be coming to end: Bill Madden makes sense

The Daily News' Bill Madden must bestride spring training press boxes like a colossus, hearkening back to the era of the late Dick Young - the hateful, hyper-righteous, acid-bombing sportswriter - the MLB equivalent of AM radio's Michael Savage. In recent years, Madden's blinding hatred for Alex Rodriguez caused him to edge shamefully into the silken bathrobes of Hal Steinbrenner...

Calling Yankees 'cheap' really irks Hal Steinbrenner: Report

Want to get a rise out of Hal Steinbrenner without mentioning the name A-Rod? Try saying "cheap."That's cheap as in skinflint, tightwad or penny-pincher. Words not normally associated with the New York Yankees. In an interview with the New York Post's Joel Sherman on Wednesday, Steinbrenner said the idea that the Yankees — just two days after losing out on the Yoan Moncada bidding...

If Ichiro is blaming Girardi for last year, he's blaming the wrong guy

Let's with Ichiro the best in Miami. He played hard for the Yankees and never complained. But Hal Steinbrenner overruled everybody and signed him to a two-year deal that never made sense for the Yankees or Ichiro. This is what happens when a know-it-all owner meddles. I'm tired of hearing how Hal is "the smart brother." It's time to look at the record and the state of the team,...

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...
