Exclamation Yankees Upset with N.Y. Times....

N.Y. Times in middle of Sox-Yankees feud

The New York Times accused the New York Yankees for "acting like a superstar free agent" in their request for a new stadium, and the Bronx Bombers have responded saying the distinguished newspaper is simply worried about the potential effect on the Boston Red Sox, according to The New York Post.

The Times launched the first salvo in a Sunday editorial, saying the Yankees' request to build an $800 million replica of Yankee Stadium was "asking for the moon."

But as The Post points out, that article never mentions that the New York Times Co. is a part-owner of the Red Sox, the defending World Series champs.

A Yankee insider snickered, "The Gray Lady's Red Sox are showing."

What's more, the Yankees feel the Times has substantial interest in stopping George Steinbrenner and others from building a new, state-of-the-art facility.

"The better the Yankees do financially, the more money they'll have to pay the best players, and the more the Yankees will beat the Red Sox," the insider explained.

The new stadium reportedly would include plenty of new corporate boxes, which will generate even more revenue for team whose payroll currently exceeds $180 million.

But the Post says the Yankees are asking the city/state to spend $300 million on a new train station, an improved ferry terminal, and a parking garage.

Yankees president Randy Levine has challenged the facts of the editorial, and he also blasted the Times' hypocrisy for criticizing the Yankees' requests for infrastructure improvements without acknowledging the government subsidies The Times will enjoy at its new headquarters which are being built.

"Isn't it amazing that the Times never mentions the tax enhancements it receives for its projects, including the new Times building, when they pass judgment on other transactions?" Levine asked.

With the first pitch between the Yankees and Red Sox looming Sunday night, this much is clear: the rivalry never rests!

Play ball!


Aww poor Yankee cry babies don't like it when the spolight isn't on them anymore...Too fuckin bad!!!

As an ardent Indians fan, I should say that the Yankees are pretty much the face of the league right now, regardless of what Boston won last year. They're the most successful team in the history of North American sports...why shouldn't they ask for these things?? If you don't ask...you don't get.

Of course the NY Times is a rag filled with liars, plagarists and propagandists, so I'm guessing Steinbrenner could give a fuck. He'll get what he wants...Red Sox Fan will cry about it...and the rest of the world will wish both sides would just shut up and play ball.

Late.

They are both the faces of the league since nearly all their games are prime time.

Why does Steinbrenner want a new stadium? Yankee stadium is just fine.

Wanna know how much I like the Yankees? See my sig.

But in the Yankees' defense... if they want a new stadium, then that's their business, and the NY Times should just shut the hell up and let them build what they want to build. Although making a "new and improved" Yankee Stadium is pretty much spitting on their history and abandoning the house which Babe Ruth built. But if that's what they want to do...

What is the picture of? I don't get it.

Personally, I don't think there's any reason for them to get a new stadium. Yankee Stadium is one of the most classic stadiums around.

^^^^They Yankees used to get into it with the Royals back in the George Brett days. Thats pic looks older than that, but thats the only time I can remember Yankee/Royal fights.

They want a new staduim, because 1(its falling apart just like Wrigley, 2) More seating= more money. Plus when they came up with this idea, it was a way to get the Olympics back to NY.

Well the Olympics, is why they are trying to speed up the process on gettin the new Jet stadium. It will cause more traffic problems, but nothing they can't handle.
