No team in sports talks more about their history than the New York Yankees and that is why the decision to honor Tino Martinez and Paul O'Neill with plaques in Yankee Stadium is so puzzling. Honoring Martinez and O'Neill is an affront to Yankee history for two reasons.

It has become more common to measure the success, or health, of the game by things like the revenue generated by the teams.

Randee Mia Berman

A bona fide politician actually put down his fork mid-air to listen to me. Not one minute was spent on fundraising or self-promotion. Nope. Instead, Adolfo Carrion, running on the Independent Party ticket, concentrated on us -- all young independent artists struggling to survive in New York City.
