Steinbrenner: 'We're allies with Red Sox'

Yankees co-owner Hank Steinbrenner was asked on Monday about MLB's revenue sharing and luxury tax programs, and said that changes are needed. 

 

"We've got to do a little something about that, and I know Bud [Selig] wants to correct it in some way," Steinbrenner told the media in Tampa. "Obviously, we're very much allies with the Red Sox and the Mets, the Dodgers, the Cubs, whoever in that area."

 

Steinbrenner said he doesn't know the exact figure the Yankees will have to pay for revenue sharing and luxury tax, but he estimated the club's 2010 payments to be in the $130 million range.

 

"At some point, if you don't want to worry about teams in minor markets, don't put teams in minor markets, or don't leave teams in minor markets if they're truly minor,'' Steinbrenner said. "Socialism, communism, whatever you want to call it, is never the answer.''

Just 27 years of age, Hobbs suffered a neck injury as a member of the Eagles while returning a kick against the Giants on Nov. 21. He did noy play again and was placed on injured reserve.

He played four seasons for the Patriots and set the NFL record for longest kickoff return on Sept. 9 2007 against the Jets. Hobbs was traded to the Eagles during the 2009 NFL draft for a pair of fifth-round picks and played two seasons in Philadelphia. He suffered a pair of neck injuries while playing for Philadelphia, the second of which has proven to be career-ending.
