GEORGE STEINBRENNER RUMORS

Did the Yankees just suspend their top prospect for complaining?

The New York Yankees have suspended top prospect Jorge Mateo for two weeks, costing him the opportunity to play in the Futures Game on Sunday in San Diego.But the real story is the possible reason for the discipline -- a throwback to the old-school, no-nonsense days of George Steinbrenner.According to the New York Post, the Yankees' decision could have stemmed from Mateo recently...

Joe DiMaggio lawyer blocking hit streak bobblehead night

On the 75th anniversary of the famed 56-game hitting streak, the New York Yankees had planned to honor Joe DiMaggio. The Bronx Bombers wanted to mark the anniversary of the Yankee legend’s greatest career  accomplishment with a bobblehead. Unfortunately, that will not happen. The team and DiMaggio’s lawyer, Morris Engelberg, could not agree on arrangements. Engelberg denied...

Lockdown Bullpen 2016: Remembering When The Yankees Tried It Before

George Steinbrenner thought of it first: put together a lockdown bullpen and shorten the game. Well, at least that seems to be what he was thinking. In the off season following the 1977 championship run, the year that Yankee reliever and closer, Sparky Lyle, won the Cy Young award (which struck a blow for relief pitchers everywhere), Steinbrenner wasn't satisfied. Already armed...

Eight best MLB spring training stadiums

Rejoice baseball fans, MLB spring training is just 30 days away! No professional sports preseason is looked forward to as much as MLB spring training is. Why? Well for starters, all 30 teams sojourn to either Arizona or Florida and spend about a month in the much warmer climate than their cities are use to- for the most part. This makes for a perfect time for all fans to ditch...

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." You say...

MIss Congeniality: Will Hal Steinbrenner sit back and let Boston sign David Price?

Once upon a time, the prospect of facing the Evil Empire in a bidding war rendered nightmares unto so-called "small market owners" - (aka, billionaires who own minor states, such as Kansas.) This dark period ended seven years ago, when the fiscally prudent children of George Steinbrenner assumed the family business of owning.Today's Yankee owners play well with fellow owner heirs...

Pineda, Eovaldi strong in Yankees' victory

The New York Yankees have to be pleased with Monday’s performances from Michael Pineda and Nathan Eovaldi, as the young guns combined for five scoreless innings in the club’s 4-3 win against the Tampa Bay Rays at George Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. It is early, but there is reason to believe both pitchers can parlay strong spring performances into success during the regular...

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...

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...

Finally reaching the $189 million crossroads, the Yankees apparently will let others determine the future

Hal Steinbrenner sabotaged the 2013 Yankees. At the time, it seemed a worthy cause. If the Yankees could shrink their bloated $230 million payroll to $189 million, they would escape a huge luxury tax. Eventually, they could sign a Bryce Harper or Mike Trout, or even both. One year at $189 million, that's all they needed, and then they could spend, spend, spend... with impunity. If...
