Default Steinbrenner / Yankees : George more mellow why?

Whether you loved him in the past or hated him ( I don't want to get into that in this thread), it definitely seems he is much more sedate and quiet this year. Why? Is he ok? Is their a succession plan? Who thinks Dolan will buy the Yankees?

I think he just realizes that baseball is so fundamentally flawed in his favor. He realizes that at the end of the year, at worst the Yanks will have a wild card spot. The Yanks offense is a non-issue, and the pitching will come around once they settle into a rotation with Clemens/Petit/Mussina.

Seriously, is he supposed to be worried about Tampa, Baltimore, or Toronto? Besides, lets see what happens to the Sox AFTER the all-star break.

I suspect his doctor recommending that he not get over stressed as it will be bad for his health might have something to do with it.

He is older, and I have heard rumours about ailing health. I wish him the best, juts find it odd he has been as amenable as he is. I have watched him and been a Yankee fan since 1975.

I've been thinking his health may be worse than is being reported. There has been some talk that his health is in decline, and he didn't look too good a while back when he made a public appearance related to the new stadium. It seems that he's been completely staying out of the public eye these days and anything is through his spokesman.

It's about time for him to be a little more mellow. Let's see how mellow he is after the next Sox series in N.Y.

Saw footage of him taking in the Rocket in Tampa last week. He's looking a little frail.

I heard on the radio earlier today that he was beginning to suffer from alzhiemers.

Life is a long lesson in humility. Longer for some than others.

On the other hand, the curse of the AROD may be simply taking its toll.
