HAL STEINBRENNER NEWS

What happens in a private Yankee workout for Yoan Moncata?

It begins when Randy Levine yells, "Drop and give me ten, rook!"To see what the kid has for endurance, Hal Steinbrenner dons his Kinky Boots and challenges Yoan to keep up during a tap rendition of "42nd Street." 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...

Hal Steinbrenner Hasn’t Proved He Is Committed To Yankees Winning In 2015

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,...

Should Yankee fans be excited over the team's new frugality?

Across the Yankiverse this week, reaction to the Nationals' signing of Max Scherzer has generally reminded me of - well - Kansas City fans. Many bloggers and die hards are openly expressing relief that the Yankees didn't sign the best pitcher on the 2015 market - and the one guy who would have made a difference next year - because he would have cost too much.I too wasn't sure what...

Empire Not Ruling Out Signing Max Scherzer

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...

Yankee Prudence

"Hal Steinbrenner" by Paul J. BereswillLiving in New York for most of the past decade, it's easy to pick up the rhythms of the metropolis's professional sports teams. It's well known the Yankees have changed since the heyday of George Steinbrenner's wild spending on free agents. His sons have run the team with what seems like a bit more financial restraint, although their spending...

Hal Steinbrenner: Yankees not 'afraid to spend money'

The Yankees still are the Yankees.   While this offseason has been relatively quiet for New York, the Bronx Bombers still could make a splash before Opening Day. Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner maintained Wednesday that the team has spending limits, but he also didn’t close the door on dishing out cash to improve the club. “We’re still the New York Yankees, all you guys...

On the matter of Max Scherzer, Hal Steinbrenner not only invokes Yogi, but Jerry Garcia

About 40 years ago, an enterprising journalist asked Jerry Garcia why so many contradictory quotes existed among members of the Grateful Dead, when it came to explaining the meanings of certain songs. The Zen master replied that early on, the group decided that anybody should say anything in press interviews, true or not, and they wouldn't care. It just didn't matter. And to this...

In recreating his father's legacy, did Hal Steinbrenner just pull a Buhner?

For years now, I've endured this recurring tragic-comedy nightmare that Hal Steinbrenner is fated to relive his dad's up-and-down record as owner of the Yankees.If so, that includes the 14-Year Barf - from the early 80s into the mid-90s-  when the Yankees consistently sucked, despite burning money on free agents. The Boss made his reputation by firing people. Would it not be karma...

Terrible news this Christmas. My fave Yankee fan blog is going the way of Zelous Wheeler. (Not moving to Japan, but exiting.)

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. (BTW, third.)Should we, as die-hard Yankee rooters, give a crap that the ownership is becoming fiscally prudent?Before unfurling my tirade, a few understandings...I am writing as a consummate Yankee fan asshole. Yes, I'm aware that we spend...

Will Yankees choose now or the future?

The Winter Meetings were exceptional if you’re into big signings and huge trades, but not for some fans of the New York Yankees. For many Yankees fans, it was a downer, especially after the previous Friday when they signed Andrew Miller and traded for Didi Gregorius. What the meetings provided for Yankees fans is a wake-up call on how the club will be doing business in the future...

Ruthless and Ruth-less: Was Jeter's farewell tour the last gasp of Yankee loyalty to their players?

For the last two years, the Yankees have done little more than launch farewell tours and hand out plaques to their icons of the '90s. Our pitching was mediocre, the hitting worse, and the brain trust was always first to note that it would NOT blame all those injuries - which is, of course, the spin doctor's way to blame all those injuries.But today, passengers on the NY Titanic face...

Rhyme of the ancient Yankees: Money, money, everywhere - but not a cent to spend

Last night, Jon Lester went off the Yankee grid, hours after we lost David Robertson - in both cases, without ever firing off a shot.Today, a popular view across the Yankiverse is that Hal Steinbrenner has been marshaling his bottle deposits, planning to grab a Max Scherzer or a James Shields, or somebody at least bigger than the two sorry teams signed for the 2014 Pinstripe Bowl...

AJ Burnett re-signs with Pittsburgh, another reminder of Hal Steinbrenner's original sin: Russell Martin

It seems like yesterday, the winter of our discontent - 2012-13 - when the Yankees prepared to re-sign Russell Martin, the Ray Liotta lookalike. He was coming off a brutal season - 21 HRs and a .211 average, thanks to a terrible start - and all he wanted was a two-year deal.Yep. Seems crazy, doesn't it?Of course, we know what happened.
