That was the headline on the RAB.com blog site this morning and I nearly fell out of my chair. Then I remember the date and was flushed with relief that this was an obvious April Fools joke. But it was in that moment of a couple seconds that got me thinking how lucky we as Yankee fans really are to have an owner(s) like the Steinbrenners. For all the crap that we've tolerated over the years from George...being suspended twice by baseball, the Winfield scandal, changing managers like most people change underwear, the constant demand to win, calling out players and managers through the press, the hands-on style, etc. We would gladly accept all of that over anything the Dolan family would do. The Dolans own the Rangers and Knicks...no further explanation is needed.
So let me take this moment to say "Thank You" to the Steinbrenner family for maybe not doing it right all the time, but for at least always trying to win and make the fans happy...and for being light years better than the Dolans.
