Like Boss George Cares

Today the NY Daily News is hawking an “exclusive” story about the Yanks losing somewhere between 50 and 85 million bucks last year. As if the fact that he’s shelling out more in revenue sharing and luxury tax whacks than most teams spend on salary is gonna matter to Darth Boss George. Because face it: if DBG ever became strapped for cash, what investment bank on the planet wouldn’t front him dough? Between the franchise and the YES network, George is sitting on a fucking money machine and everybody knows it.

And red ink in last, next or any year’s ledger isn’t gonna change his lust for World Series rings. Mike Lupica, in his accompanying piece, noted that, despite anything Brian Cashman has to say about the team’s effort to cut back on their payroll, this is still Steinbrenner’s Yankees, which means one absolute universal law:

Listen, if there were an A-Rod out there this winter and Steinbrenner wanted him, Cashman would probably need the Marines to hold the owner back.

Hey, Lip? Cash would need a hell of a lot more than the Marines; he’d need God himself, chucking lightning bolts toward Tampa at a furious clip, and even then it would be iffy.
