I have zero clue so I ask: Could a jersey buried inside the cement cause a foundation issue (like it cracking or something similar)?
Even if that turns out to be impossible, the Yankees still didn't get what they paid for. They wanted solid cement, someone (or group of people) intentionally didn't deliver that. So yeah, logically I can see charges being filed.
Yeah... That's really reaching there, Mad. This is no different than construction workers burying trash in a foundation. It happens all of the time, and you never hear about a house collapsing due to a McDonald's coffee cup in the cement.
The only charges I could possibly see being filed here are some sort of psychological battery charges, like intentional distress or something. However, I hardly see that being a criminal charge, and I definitely don't see the Yankees organization as a "person" capable of feeling distress.
A civil suit to recover the cost of digging up the shirt seems more likely and any criminal charges... to me.
