Anybody who knows me is well aware of my dislike of the Yankees. They are boring to watch (though this year may prove interesting – you never know). They are still stuck in the 9/11 time warp (still playing “God Bless America” during the 7th inning stretch – it’s over, guys, move on). And their owner, George Steinbrenner, will stop at nothing to buy star players to build what is the equivalent of the 1970’s “supergroup” – some of which work (a’la Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young), and some of which don’t (a’la Blind Faith).

But there are some things that the Yankees have done well, and one of those is “the house the Ruth built,” Yankee Stadium.

But no!

Now Steinbrenner has essentially signed the execution order for the Stadium, wanting to replace it with a sterile, neo-retro ballpark with fewer seats (which will command higher prices than the ripoff, opponent-adaptive pricing scale they already use), more luxury boxes and no memories.

At least Boston gets it. And this strike close to home, as the Nats and MLB eye a new stadium here in D.C., even though RFK Stadium works just fine.
