Like so many baseball fans, I disliked George Steinbrenner for one reason–jealousy.
He’s the owner every baseball fan dreams of…a guy fully committed to winning, no matter the money.
By opening his wallet to the game’s best players, the man took a pitiful Yankees
organization to the pinnacle of baseball, and better, he did it year after year.
What other owner can say that? What other owner would you rather have running your organization?
Playing in New York is a huge advantage, but I have no doubt “The Boss” would’ve won championships had he bought the Cleveland Indians, the Kansas City Royals, or even our beloved Cubbies.
And as far as Clevelanders go…I’d take George over LeBron any day!
