    Hal doesn't have to sell the team, he just needs to lock Randy Levine in a utility closet and let Cashman go pursue his true calling as an urban mountain climber.

    This thread sucks, but yea, not really all too pleased with his plan. The timing for it was just terrible, too -- too many bad contracts attached to aging/declining players.

    Hopefully it's a lesson learned, I doubt it though.

    Two of those spots are filled by rookies with upside. What's the problem with them? No excuses for the other spots but don't you think a request he sells the team is an insane overreaction?

    One year doesnt mean you make the biggest changes that can ever be made with a franchise.
    We shouldnt be so spoiled and wait to see how the next couple of years play out.

    Thats why I said the next couple years. Our better prospects are younger and a couple years down the road, it could look a whole lot better than it does now.

    Who knows, maybe a bad season or two might get people to remember how hard it is just to make the playoffs and appreciate them more when we do get there. Instead of treating it as a birthright and crying every time they have the audacity to not win a Title.

    Hal is more like one of the best owners in non-soccer sports.

    This was my thought as well. Worst owner in sports?

    This certainly isn't their best year, but to make that statement you have to be pretty ignorant of the way a larger number of other teams are run.

    Threads like this show how spoiled this fan base is, and how whiny they can be when things aren't perceived to be going well.

    Re: The Official Hal Steinbrenner is the Worst Owner in Sports

    I should probably trust my instincts and not even respond to this thread, but after 7 hours at a golf tournament in the sun and at least five alcoholic beverages over that time, I guess it's inevitable that I do.

    Hal Steinbrenner has blown away his father both in terms of spending and in terms of consistently making the postseason. Small sample size, yes, but anybody willing to put up $230mm on their payroll to essentially buy time before his main guys get back is committed to winning.

    Every single year, the Yankees have the highest payroll. Every single year, the Yankees employ a very accomplished GM and a top ten (at least) manager. Every single year, save for 2008, they make the postseason.

    What else exactly do you want the Steinbrenners to do? yes, they've made mistakes (ARod, Tex), but if the worst you can say about an owner was that he spent too much money on underpeformers who still were at minimum all stars at one point, then that's not so bad.

    Actually, it's unofficial. But official sounds more...official. See?

    And how many of the 7 runs were our 4-9 responsible for? Answer all of them. This thread is why losing a few years might not be that bad. Cleanse out the fan base.

    So this is all just a "tough love" strategy on Hal's part?

    I hear this a lot and I don't really get it. You don't think those tools would jump right back on the bandwagon once they start winning again?
