Clean it Up

I will always love the Yankees on the field, but off the field their behavior can drive me bonkers. I hate the fact that they built a stadium financed with tax-free bonds when New York City has so many things much more deserving of financing. And I don’t like this report from today’s New York Times on their “community” charity, which doesn’t look good at all.

Now the article doesn’t directly implicate the Yankees, but the Yankees need to think about the fact that their name is on the masthead and they could have tremendous influence over the charity. The ballclub does a lot of great things, HOPE Week being one of the best. But, that doesn’t excuse this. I hope the team will stand up, correct the problem, and make sure the money in the charity only goes to things in the neighboring communities.
