    Can't find one fact or actual source in this entire story. What's the point of this?

    Clickbait.


    People start hypothesizing after the Dodgers sale. Lupica writes a 5/22 'why not at least consider selling?' piece. Then the folo, this, which channels the 'chatter' on 'Wall Street' - or at least from a four-top at Sparks at which some red-faced fixed-income desk guys float the same 'why not?' scenario over their creamed spinach.

    This type of story can be done on any professional franchise. It's the NYDN doing its best to get shit started. And as usual, they are succeeding because people are talking about it.

    Not surprised and prudent on the part of Hal Steinbrenner if true.

    The business side of the team is a hot air balloon that they have continued to feed through throwing tons of money at free agents.

    Tickets are way overpriced at new stadium and it's starting to show up in attendance.

    This week for The Royals I received countless e mails from the Yankees offering me field level tickets that have a face of $80 for $40.

    If The Yankees collapse this year there will even be more deals as season goes on.

    Who wants to keep paying A-Clod and Co., at prevailing performance levels?

    or paying to watch them. The door is open for The Mets to become the favored NY baseball team again.

    Maybe they saw what they got for the Dodgers and figured to see if someone was interested in dropping a few billion for the Yankees.

    Or the value of Facebook.

    And in keeping with Mets tradition they'll walk right into the door jamb and break their nose.

    Can't sell the Yanks before the HoF conducts an unprecedented, mid-career, mid-season induction ceremony at the Stadium this August for Jetes.

    If you look at StubHub, there are less Mets tickets available for the coming month compared to the Yankees.
