Hammerin’ Hank Steinbrenner was down on the field today and spoke to a few reporters. I missed it because I was talking with Andy Pettitte at the time. But Hank assured the masses that the Yankees are World Series contenders. For $210 million, let’s hope so.
Meanwhile, Hal Steinbrenner did an interview for GQ.
It’ll be interesting to see whether running the Yankees suits the Brothers Steinbrenner. I’m sure it’s fun now, but will they want to do this until they retire? If you count the team’s share of YES and the new Stadium, the Yankees are probably worth more than $2 billion. It would be tempting to sell that.
