TWhat's the point of the topic? To call the Yankees greedy? I just don't understand.
Whether they need it or not is irrelevant IMO. If they're going to pay for it, let them build a new one every 10 yrs if they feel like it, whatever they want, and this applies to any team.
It's nice to see that much of the tradition of Yankee Stadium, the facade(sp), Monument Park is being preserved, as well as the dimensions (although with this team, they'd be more helped if the short porch were in LF (Alex, Sheffield, even Jeter).
