Post #100: An Open Letter to George Steinbrenner

Dear George,

I've been a fan of the Yankees since I was a little kid. Back in the days when Reggie Jackson had a a candy bar named after him. I always loved the Yankees win or lose. And I still do. But I find myself hating the owner. Yeah George, you. You and your gestapo tactics to scare Torre into winning. What, a manager who can rally his team from a slow start to get to the playoffs not good enough for you? This man has gotten your team to the playoffs 12 years in a row. 12 YEARS!!

So he didn't get to the series. Big deal. You know how many times I've heard from Yankee haters they bought there way in with high price talent? Well, guess what. That isn't and has never been the case. It takes a unifying element to bring a team back from the kind of start the Yanks had this year. And that element is Joe. Yet you're ready to fire him. Well, here's a few things to think about "Georgie Boy".

  1. He's loved by your team. You risk losing the team spirit he has created since he came on board.
  2. Even the Red Sox will back him if you fire him!! THE FUCKING RED SOX!!!!
  3. Rivera may go bye bye if you make Joe go bye bye. You got a better closer right now?
  4. Fans will be PISSED!!
  5. Joe is the 3rd most popular manager of the current active managers!!
  6. He is also #2 behind McCarthy in All Time Yankee Wins!!
  7. Nine straight AL East titles, 4 World Series Titles and 12 Consecutive Playoff showings!

And #8, you'll lose me as a fan. A life long fan of my childhood team. And if you do it, you're going to piss off everyone. But then that's what you like to do. Piss people off. So go ahead and decide George. Hope the weather in Tampa is nice. Enjoy the off season, and do everyone a favor. Keep your big trap shut!


P.S. If you smell something funny in your car, that's the dead fish I hid in there. Enjoy finding it.
