Via Mark Feinsand:
Despite rumors to the contrary, Hal Steinbrenner reiterated his stance that he and his brother, Hank, won’t be looking to sell the Yankees any time soon.
“That’s the plan,” Hal Steinbrenner said. “There are no plans to sell, though I know there’s been speculation. This has been in our family a long time – longer than we’ve been in Tampa, even. That’s not going to change.”
This reminds me of a scene from “Heaven Can Wait” -
Former owner: He got my team. The son of a bitch got my team.
Advisor to former owner: What kind of pressure did he use, Milt?
Former owner: All I asked was sixty-seven million, and he said “O.K.”
Advisor to former owner: Ruthless bastard.
Let’s hope someone like Donald Trump doesn’t make the Steinbrothers an offer that they can’t refuse.
