The Yankee self denial that their team is no longer the elite in the AL, and may even be on the decline is hilarious.
Heck, even people in New York
know the Yankees are in a decline phase. The team had its lowest attendance since 2001, television ratings on YES tanked and they had a huge
drop in season ticket holders. The team's lost revenue for the season is estimated to be well north of $50 million.
And folks wonder why the Yankees purchase star-power.
For the most part, all the big names (draw) were on the DL last year.
It will pick up again next year.
Fun fact: The attendance decline began in 2011 and really started tanking in 2012. Try again.
