10 years of grindingly repetitive negative rants about the Yankees have gone on largely because Yankee management has been too lazy or ill advised to put a stop to it. I limit the time I spend on baseball media now as a result. I happened to glance at Ms. Genius, Selena Roberts latest crap in the NY Times now calling "Into Question" the "Entire Yankee Dynasty." So you wonder has she uncovered something new? No, she hooks you in on a phony premise. She mentions Giambi's comments this week but then,
- refers to the Dynasty as only the 4 years 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000.
- Selena, Giambi wasn't on the team then. Jesus.
The Yankees advertisers have lost me and many other fans because of the constant negative propaganda round the clock via the baseball media types. We just avoid the whole thing.
- TO YANKEE MANAGEMENT: YOU WILL LOSE A LOT OF MONEY FOR THE NEXT FEW YEARS. WE THE FANS ARE SICK OF THIS.
The Selena Roberts article was NY Times select, which you have to pay extra for so I can't create a link.
- P.S. Please don't give me the line of 'attendance is at an all time high.' It portends as much for the future as 'the stock market is at an all time high' or 'Johnny Damon is a good bet because he's never been on the DL.' These kinds of statements often mean a change is likely.
