Ugly v. Awful: The last thing the Yankees need is a legal fight over A-Rod's upcoming "milestone" home run

Barring a tweaked gonad or a new scandal, Alex Rodriguez will soon pass the beloved Willie Mays for fourth place on the all-time career HR list, and close in on Barry Bonds for No. 1 on the all-time career list of paying lawyers. A-Rod currently has 655 -  HRs that is, not lawyers - just five below Willie. At his current rate, Alex should pass Willie around May Day, meaning the...

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...

$189 Million and the luxury tax revisited

In a recent interview with Bill Madden of the New York Daily News, Hal Steinbrenner offered up the following tidbit of information:“I found (being called cheap) very interesting,” he said, smiling, “given that we offered $25 million (for Moncada) and spent substantially in the international market (a reported $26.82 million in bonuses and penalties for greatly exceeding their...

"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...

It’s Clear the Yankees Did Not Have a Plan for Yoan Moncada

It’s been two days and Yoan Moncada is still a Boston Red Sox player. This didn’t turn out to be a cruel joke Hal Steinbrenner tried to pull to literally see if his Father might roll over in his grave. And as the past 48 hours have come and gone, it’s clear the Yankees did not have a suitable plan for how to approach an offer for the Cuban teenager. All winter long the Yankees...

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...

Please Mr. Steinbrenner, please, please, pleeeeeeeeze... sell the team

Wow. Was I ever wrong about the Yankees...All winter, I thought they were actually playing it cool. I thought they were standing back and letting the big free agents go elsewhere, so they could swoop in and sign Yoan Moncada, the 19-year-old Cuban phenom. I actually thought they had a plan, beyond saving their billionaire owner a few more dimes. Wow. Wrong, wrong, wrong... What...

Another canary keels over in the mine: Another sign the Yankees will poor-mouth on Moncada

Today, George A. King III - the blue-collar NY Post scribe with the uppity NY Times name - once again says the Evil Empire is turning knock-kneed over the cost of Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada, the last 2015 free agent who could inject hope into what now looks like the sorriest Yankee organization since the statue of Danny Tartabull patrolled RF.Writes King:[I]f the price tag is...

Then brother Hank tests the youngster's lungs by having him smoke two packs of Camels, after which he must sing a duet with Sister Joan, "You Don't Bring Me Flowers."Then...

New York Yankees Owner Hal Steinbrenner The New York Yankees may have lost out on mega free agent Max Scherzer but the team has to make a move to bolster the starting staff before the season starts. Right now the Yankees do not have one starter who can be counted on, which gives the fan base little confidence the team will break a two year postseason drought. It may be health,...

One of the Steinbrenner Brood (frankly, we're not quite sure if it's TweedleDumb or TweedleDumber) has not ruled out signing free-agent starter Max Scherzer. The Bronx Embalmers are already sporting a 2015 salary in the $210 million range. Nevertheless, Hal Steinbrenner stated, "We’re still the New York Yankees, all you guys know that. We know what the fans expect. We know what...
