    Why stop at running one franchise into the ground?

    It's kind of odd that despite placing several of his children in the team's executive positions, you never really saw anyone but Swindal take an interest in the Yankees. Now, George has to kind of force one of his sons to become an heir.

    With the Mets, you see Jeff Wilpon becoming more and more active as his father Fred ages, so the transition will be pretty easy.

    But there is no way King George sells the team anytime soon.

    TWO franchises, KW. The Rangers still suck.


    I also shudder at the thoguht of Jeff Wilpon running the Mets. The committee stank still follows him.

    You're one to talk as an Islanders fan, Yodave. Wang is not that far off from Dolan.

    Yes, Jeff along with Jim Duquette was part of the 'braintrust' that dealt Kazmir away, but remember that event is what brought Omar here.

    I am all for any business decision that runs the Yankees into the ground.

    Absolutely, give the other AL East teams a chance. King $teinbrenner's days might be numbered

    I was kidding about the Rangers. They're in OK shape. But they still suck.

    Larry Dolan hasn't done too bad of a job being the Cleveland Indians owner. Sure the fan base wishes he'd spend more money to get some higher priced FA, but the organization under him has shown the ability to spot and develop young talent effectively.
