Just my option...but I think the Stein sons have been running the Yankees since the early 2000's

IMO,George hasn't really been in charge of the Yanks since 04..Hank and Hal were slowly starting to run the show by then.


  I say that because a George Steinbrenner in his prime or even slowly declining who fired GM's,managers,and other Yankee workers at the drop of a hat would have fired Torre after game 7 of the 04 ALCS before Torre even had a chance to get up to the mike. Heck,he might have even fired Torre after his actions helped us lose the 03 World Series.

 Those complaining about what's being done to the team..maybe they're trying a new approach because they saw all the spending they did really didn't accomplish much other then 09.

 Am I happy with everything they've done? Nope but as Hal has pointed out,if you can't win with a $189 million dollar payroll,there are other issues at work.

 There are other issues at work and some of them point to this team having some down seasons . Passing on Chapman was a serious warning shot. Then Cespedes. No excuse for passing on either. It's more then bad scouting and bad player developement. Hal only cares about profits but doesn't ubderstand that putting a exciting team with up and coming players on it makes it a must see. Now not so much.I found last years team a boring watch for the most part and expect more of the same next season. The prospects that could bring excitement are a few years away so get ready to wait and hope.

Right on regarding Chapman and Cespedes--stupid non-moves. Soler, too. And what about that Japanese high-school phenom--are we going to let the Sox take him, too? Maybe Cashman should look over to Baltimore, what with their bringing up the AA player Machado who perfomed better than average down the pennant stretch. Why not, in our case, Heathcott and/or Austin and/or Williams--bringing them up soon would make for your "excitement," even if we have to endure what Hal has bequeathed us: two or three down years, while the Sox ramp up their personnel, and we start resembling the Knicks.
