THE ROBBER BARONS OF BASEBALL. THE NEW YORK YANKEES, DEMANDING ANOTHER $400 MILLION IN TAX DOLLARS, CONTINUE TO STEAL FROM NEW YORKERS. LET A-ROD, CLEMENS ET. AL. PAY FOR THE STADIUM.

By Tom Weiss

The New York Yankees are demanding $400 million more in tax dollars to complete a new Stadium that should never have been built in the first place. The only reason for the new Stadium is the fact that the iconic existing ball park has no luxury boxes for the corporate predators who want to lord it over New Yorkers and want to watch Alex Rodriguez strike out in the clutch in executive suite-style comfort.

The new Stadium has already resulted in the destruction of two City parks. It will cause a tsunami of traffic congestion, over-development and gentrification in the economically fragile South Bronx.

If the Yankees want another $400 million, they can get it from the likes of the womanizing Alex Rodriguez, whose $30 million "annual" salary for a very part-time job can easily contribute. Perhaps Roger Clemens, who "earned" about $17 million to pitch very badly in his last egotistical season in pinstripes (for a guy who could wind up in prison stripes with Barry Bonds and a few other baseball chemists) can help out. And so can Andy Pettitte and the mega-muscled baseball chemist Jason Giambi.

And Michael Bloomberg should be able to make up the difference by just taking his hands out of our pockets and fishing some cash out of his own pockets.
