This was inevitable

Somehow, I knew something like this was coming:

The New York Yankees urged a state judge Tuesday to quash the subpoena from two assembly committees investigating the use of public funds to help build thet eam's new stadium, saying the issue has already been fully aired publicly.
It's one of the most exhaustively reviewed and approved public projects in the state and in the country involving a sports team," attorney Jonathan Schiller said after Tuesday's court hearing.

Schiller estimated it would cost the Yankees between $600,000 and $1.2 million to comply with Brodsky's subpoena for private information from the past nine years.
Of course, not signing Marte would have freed up plenty of cash to pay for this. Either way, money's being flushed.

I wish I was there to see Randy Levine cursing Assemblyman Richard Brodsky for "exceeding his authority and harassing the Yankees with legal action".

Boy, hating on the Yankees just isn't as much fun as it used to be. It's like that cool, out of the way place where you used to hang out that nobody knew about. But now everyone goes there, and it's no fun any more.
