Clue-by-Four: Ramblings of a Jock Dork

“The Boss” Will Be Missed (with more links)

“The Boss” will be missed by Yankees fans and Major League Baseball. His contributions to the game over the past 30+ years have reshaped the scope and reach of the game.  And all of this just days after losing Bob Shepphard, voice of the Yankees for so many, many years.

I cannot articulate what has already been said, so I will share some links with you of some people who have shared their thoughts:

Sean Napfel, Baltimore Radio Host


William Nack, ESPN writer

Wallace Matthews, ESPN New York

Buster Olney, ESPN Baseball Analyst discusses Steinbrenner as greatest owner of all-time in baseball (Video)

John Kruk and Karl Ravach, ESPN Baseball Analysts (video)

Jerry Jones, Cowboys Owner (video)

Dick Vitale about Steinbrenner’s gererosity

Paul O’Neill, one of the key components to the dynasty of the late 90’s

Even an entry from Dickipedia

In Closing: For a man who said he would stick to ship building and stay out of day-to-day operations of the New York Yankees, you proved to be an asshole and a liar. Thank you.

    Have you read “Ball Four” yet? You’ve got to. I know, it’s 500+ pages, but I’m having a hard time putting it down. Jim Bouton was a former Yankee, banished by the management, and I’m waiting to see if he encounters Steinbrenner…
