George Steinbrenner Passes Away at 80...

This morning, New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner passed away in Tampa, Florida after suffering an apparent heart attack.

Really, no matter what you think of him as a person or as an owner, he sure did change the culture and economics of baseball - much less sports - perhaps for the better, or worse.

No matter what, the man spent what he could on his team and showed an insatiable desire to win - even if it came at a detriment.

In turn, Steinbrenner's teams rewarded him with seven World Series titles. Even as an Oriole fan who could never find himself rooting for the Yankees, I have to respect what he did.

He used the system in place to win and win big.

A lot (especially in the last two decades).


Rest in peace.
