Attention all fans of the New York Yankees:
Unhappy with the job that Hal and Hank Steinbrenner have done as the majority owners of the New York Yankees? Have no fear for…. Mitt Romney is here?
Mitt Romney, former Presidential candidate, attempted to purchase a stake in the Miami Marlins earlier this offseason before the deal ultimately fell through but that is not keeping the man who lost to eventual President Obama from trying again to get into MLB ownership. Romney wants to own a share in the New York Yankees and he is willing to pay a pretty penny for it too. If the reported deal goes through Romney will pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $25-$30 million per percentage point and is said to be interested in up to two percentage points of ownership in the club.
Romney, a lifelong Boston Red Sox fan, wants to purchase a share in the New York Yankees? Hmm, I don’t quite know what to make of that.
