Oh No You Don’t!

Dear Darth Boss George: Don’t even think this idea is gonna fly:

The Yankees have made a fresh pitch to the city for a new retro-styled, open-air stadium right across from the House that Ruth Built.

I understand it irks you thinking about the Jets maybe getting a spanking new midtown stadium to lure them back to our side of the Hudson. And it makes you mental to think that the Mets might get a new park to replace the toilet bowl they currently call home. But there is no way in hell you’re gonna get to blow up the House That Ruth Built. Any mayor that agreed would be committing political suicide. And the rank and file fans will go nuts when they hear:

The new open-air stadium in Macombs Dam Park would seat around 50,000 people and include about 50 skyboxes. The current stadium holds about 57,000 people, but has fewer of the highly lucrative luxury boxes.

You want to cut seats and add penthouses? You son of a bitch, you already own the most profitable team in baseball! You made all that payroll dough without a bunch of high rent private boxes.

You’d be screwing with primal forces, Boss. You tear down the cathedral and the ghosts will tear your ass apart. Do you really think that you can dig up and move Monument Park without pissing off Mighty Mite, Babe, and the Iron Horse?

Do you want to be the dickhead whose money lust reversed The Curse?
