I've been trying to resist the urge to type this, but:

"...and all your money won't another minute buy."

In all seriousness, it's tough to look at George through the eyes of lifelong Yankees fans when you're a lifelong Red Sox fan. One thing I will always remember about George was his participation in the annual Jimmy Fund/Red Sox Foundation event. He had no problem putting the baseball/business stuff aside and made contributions to his enemy's favorite cause. Otherwise, he ran a baseball club that gave the city and it's fans what he thought they deserved.

RIP George

My thoughts and prayers for his family and friends.


He was definitely not too attached to his money:

Asked about what drove his philanthropy, Steinbrenner told the St. Pete Times in 2005: ďI donít want to die with all this money. I want to give to the people. I donít want to be the richest man in the cemetery.Ē

Though, that was evident if you watched how his team operated during free agency as well :P

If CC Slobbathia gets hurt jamming McNuggets down his piehole, the NYY are ski-rewed. they may get to the playoffs, but unless Mo is going to start and finish three games or AROD can get to 700 HR's they are in trouble. Also, their vaunted lineup from top to bottom if you are blind to names (i.e. Jeter/AROD/Teieieiexera/Pussada are not exaclty tearing the cover off the ball - I realize they have a lot of thump. Also, key pick up Granderson is looking a little like Darnell McDonald, minus forty points on his BA.
I hate those smug bastards.

Johnny Damon is officially dead to me. That guy from 2004 was somebody else.

Of course he would want to go back to the Bronx. That's the only park he can hit a freakin' HR in.

She'll be able to afford quite a bit of therapy once he signs with them in another month or so. Plus she'll be in a luxury box, not down low with the wildlife.

What does it say about Lee? You can spit at my wife and call her a whore, but that doesn't mean we can't to a little biznez.
Plenty of 'low' to go around here.

That was my initial reaction too, but then I thought about it a little bit and if I'm his agent, I'm going to tell him to react the way he did. If Lee doesn't want to play for the Yankees and he comes out and says so publicly, he loses a lot of financial leverage in negotiation with other teams. When the shadow of the Yankees looms over a player, competing teams will almost always offer more than they plan because they feel pressured to do so.

That's not to mention the fact that they can squeeze more money out of the Yankees. All they need to do is remind them that he may be apprehensive about playing there because of how his wife was treated. I'm sure that will come up in negotiations. Could get him an extra year or an extra couple million.

I thought Women like it when you spit on them and call them a whore. Does that mean I might be a yankee fan? Christ, I hope not.

Kobe Bryant raped a chick in Colorado. That doesn't stop him from playing against the Denver Nuggets.

I don't know why Yankees fans acting like Yankees fans would stop Cliff Lee from taking their money.
