The Yankees were slapped with a $26 million luxury tax by the commissioner's office, raising New York's total to $97.75 million over the past four years. Boston, which missed the playoffs, was the only other team over the tax threshold and will pay $497,549.

I'm not a baseball fan, but I sure do enjoy it when when a team with a tiny payroll takes the series... I love the thought that somewhere stienbrenner is clinching his teeth.

I'm sorry Marty, but every time I read something you post, the meaning gets twisted into some kind of dirty sailor talk... clinching his teeth :lol: Maybe I need some coffee.

Steinbrenner is damn near on his death bed and has been for months. He is just a figurehead who has no control over anything anymore.

I knew he wasn't well, but now the word is that he's on his death bed? Who would take over the team?

son in law takes over. But Swindle and Levine pretty much run the show.

He goes from bad to worse. He is ok for a few weeks at a time, then he gets in "really bad shape" and they think this might be it. Then he rebounds for a week or so and is better. He hasn't run the day to day operations in a few years anyway. He hasn't made a call on a player in a while.

Guys named Swindal and Cashman running the Yankees just can not be made up.
