You didn't hear the YES folks mention this story on the telecast last night. Honestly, it's getting harder and harder to maintain any allegiance to this franchise. We all know that as fans it's our lot to be taken for granted, and that we make our compromises in rooting for any commercial venture. But there also should be some kind of compact between team and its loyal devotees, and it seems like the Yankees have decided they're just not interested in maintaining it. And if they're not, why should we? Especially if the show stinks.
