The Yankees Probably Aren't For Sale And Other MLBullets

The latest from around MLB...

  • The New York Yankees are for sale, according to a New York Daily News story, which was, of course, vehemently denied by the Steinbrenner Family. Unnamed sources told the Daily News that, following the Dodgers' sale for $2.15 billion, the Steinbrenners were "enthused" about that price, and got to wondering just how much the Yankees might sell for. Hal Steinbrenner is painted as an uninterested owner and chairman, who doesn't really care about baseball (again, something that's been denied). My thought? Aren't sports franchises one of the toys you buy when you have billions of dollars? If so, what do you do when you sell one for three or four billion? Buy a country? There's only so much you can do with gigantic sums of money in your life, and owning a team like the Yankees seems like one of the coolest.
