What the hell? How does a guy like George Steinbrenner die? And what’s going to happen to the New York Yankees? Seriously, this could change baseball. There aren’t too many guys around who can have an influence on a sport like George Steinbrenner. he was the personality of the New York Yankees, the heart and sould of the Yankees. Riciculed, criticized, reviled, or loved, George Steinbrenner was an original. Hopefully the New York Yankees can keep winning and keep the MLB in turmoil. It’s what we’ve come to expect.
