I think someone in the organization planted the story just to see what interest/offers it would bring in. I highly doubt they had any interest in selling but after the Dodgers sold for 2+ billion, they were curious. I have no doubt they received at least one phone call.

Sometimes you can say never. Hal and Hank are a chip off the old block and LOVE being in control and will NEVER relinquish that. We'll have to wait another 30+ years to see what their kids will do but until then, it will remain Steinbrenner owned.

Well...OK. But I'm definitely going to say "I told you so" if they sell that team.

You can say I told you so but based on this, it wont be in either of our lifetimes.

Listen, if they get sold, it won't have anything to do with money, or the apparently endless desire for an even newer stadium. It'll be because the person in the Steinbrenner family who genuinely cared about the team was George--and he's not running the show any more.

The Yankees franchise has been sold 4 times, not including the years when they were the Orioles. The Steinbrenners have had the longest ownership.

Yeah, but as George Harrison sang, "All Things Must Pass." Nobody--whether an individual or a family--has owned any one baseball team from the very beginning.

I don't think they will ever sell but you totally nailed it with this one. No Steinbrenner cares or cared as much about the Yankees like George. His heart was totally into the team and he loved NY and became part of it. Hank and Hal are just following the playbook that was left behind.

I have to check the facts for baseball, I think you're right but in other sports there are a few teams. This is one:
