Is it because he’s a former Yankee?
Yeah I will agree that is pathetic that they are still looking for about $250 million in investors.Main reason for me is that he and his group are too poor to be owning this franchise. It seems like a vanity thing and if Jeter weren't a golden boy, Mas would have possibly gotten the team.
this exactly. the PR leaves something to be desired, but the amount of ridiculous hate he has gotten is so over the top. You'd think he was tearing down a good team rather than a team that hasnt finished over .500 in nearly a decade.I think from a PR perspective Jeter has done a bad job. I was thinking there would be more transparency with the Marlins after the team was sold, seems to be almost the same if not worse. Who knows once the dust settles things will be a little better. Baseball-wise you gotta wait for the results. Tha albatross of contracts on this team sucks. Chen, Volzquez, Tazawa. Luckily the last two come off the books after this season.
But I don't think it is fair they are getting this much scrutiny, anyone that would have inherited this team would be going through the same thing.
there was not one person who was going to buy the team and not do some partial stripping down of the team. No one is buying a business and being ok with losing millions of dollars every year right away and for the foreseeable future.Mas didn’t have the money either.
I stopped giving a crap what Olney even said about 5 years ago. He's not the reporter he used to be.Now buster olney, who im not sure why but seems to have an irrational hatred for Jeter, is criticizing him for not being at the winter meetings. People do realize jeter isnt our GM or president of baseball operations, right? He is the organization CEO and he has less than a 1% stake in the team, but he isnt making baseball decisions. He might be giving general guidance as to the direction he wants Denbo and Hill to take the team, but this is just more irrational criticism of Jeter. It would like being mad at Jeffrey Loria for not going to the winter meetings. I'd prefer my owner to stay the hell away from the winter meetings or at the very least not meddle in the decision making of the baseball people.
