Yanks Contribute to Pols

It seems the Yankees’ efforts to buy a winning team are not restricted only to the playing field. According to today’s Metro City Council Land Use Committee Chair Melinda Katz and Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion also received checks from the men in pinstriped suits. Granted, nothing close to the roughly $26 million a year given to Alex Rodriguez, but the campaign contributions were arguably more effective as the Yankees seem well on their way to building a new stadium.
