Everyone send Mr. Steinbrenner a hanky

The New York Yankees have been to the World Series so many times that it just isn't funny, but Mr. George Steinbrenner is really upset that they aren't headed there in 2006.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Yankees owner George Steinbrenner said he was "deeply disappointed" at his team's elimination in the first round of the AL playoffs, calling it a "sad failure."


"I am deeply disappointed at our being eliminated so early in the playoffs," Steinbrenner said in a statement issued Sunday by spokesman Howard Rubenstein. "This result is absolutely not acceptable to me nor to our great and loyal Yankee fans. I want to congratulate the Detroit Tigers organization and wish them well. Rest assured, we will go back to work immediately and try to right this sad failure and provide a championship for the Yankees, as is our goal every year."

So throwing $194.6 million at your players isn't a guarantee of a championship any more.

I wonder how long it will be before Wal-Mart is blamed for this...
