Abe Vigoda is dead, Howie Kendricks is signed, and Hal Steinbrenner lost $30,000 gambling on baseball cards.

This week, the Yankee Code Red Terror Alert finally ended. Howie Kendricks finally signed with the Dodgers.It's over. The kidney stones passed. Count your toes. Bring the kids up from the basement. And count the kids. Remember: There are things worse than death, and there are things worse than going a winter without a free agent... things such as, well, signing Howie Kendricks...

As the Yankees' bargain basement winter continues, a question: How did we get this way?

Yesterday, the Retrieval Empire added journeyman catcher Carlos Corporan to the Scranton playlist, continuing our K-Mart austerity plan in a time when every other MLB franchise is buying at Bloomingdales.    For the record, I wish Carlos luck. He's 32, a career .212 hitter, and a few years ago, he and his wife suffered a terrible tragedy, when their 16-month old son died from...

"The recent comments by owner Hal Steinbrenner regarding club payroll and the future elucidate the seriousness with which the club is taking its goal of winning within the confines of fiscal responsibility. It also creates a concern that the team’s focus

PAUL LEBOWITZ NAILS IT. A plan that changes based on the latest fad and arbitrary results is not a plan at all. Had they hired a new GM – one who has a history or resume in building a club based on financial constraints, developing prospects, and making shrewd deals – then there was an excuse to follow this scheme. They didn’t. They kept the same people in place and...

As Mets strengthen their grip on NY, the Yankees do what comes naturally: They pass on Cespedes

Wednesday, Hal Steinbrenner made a rather comical remark to reporters while entering the Bohemian Grove East conference of the Loyal Order of Illuminati, aka the MLB owners' meetings.

Why Hal Steinbrenner is a gold-plated cheapskate

I'd like to take a break from the gonad-popping jubilation over the Yankees' big Christmas week signings - Vinnie Pestano, Cesar Puello and Sebastian Valle! - and ponder the subtle sea changes that have happened over the last few years, because some of you are - rightfully - questioning the reasons why this blog tags Hal Steinbrenner with the nickname, "I'm Not Cheap."

The 2016 Yankees will "rebuild on the fly," (aka "do more with less,") which is fine... as long as it works

Lately, word from the Tampa Death Star goes that the former Evil Empire - now the Evil Also-Ran - will "rebuild on the fly" in 2016 - look to the future AND chase the post-season. That's from Exalted Owner, Hal "I'm Not Cheap" Steinbrenner, whose official blather - seemingly straight out of North Korea - goes this way:The Exalted Leader won't allow the Yankees to take a year off...

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

In time, Steinbrenner became the majority owner and managing partner of the franchise. In 2008, George Steinbrenner’s sons Hank and Hal became the co-chairmen of the team as the family patriarch began to age, and...
