Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti is a really rich guy. But he’ll be able to drink for free in Boston, Toronto, Tampa Bay and Baltmore for a while thanks to what he said to the Baltimore Sun:
“If I’m a Yankees fan, I’m upset we’re not winning 130 games with the roster that they have and the money that they pay out. I think it’s a disgrace they only beat the average team by 10 games in the standings with three times the money. I’d fire that GM. You don’t need a GM. All you have to do is buy the last Cy Young Award winner every year.”
There are assorted things wrong with that statement, starting with not really understanding baseball and the relative impossibility of winning 130 games even with a $300 million payroll. You also can’t actually buy the Cy Young Award winner every year. You also need a GM to send guys to Scranton once in a while, stuff like that.
Still, it’s kind of funny to see a wealthy guy get all fired up like that. Just a guess, but this will not play well in New York. No, not at all.
