The Steinbrenner Good for MLB Debate

Read the opposing arguments from Babe Ruthless and Loyal Homer.

The Boss has left us, but his imprint will forever be left on professional baseball.

For more than 30 years George Steinbrenner ruled the Bronx Bombers with a style all his own. Whether you agreed with his style or not, it was undeniably successful. During his reign as owner of the New York Yankees the franchise won seven World Series championships and a total of eleven A.L. pennants.

His style as owner for baseball’s most prestigious franchise has undoubtedly shaped the game today, as his record-setting contract offers were instrumental in dividing the league’s franchises into the current big versus small market divisions we see today.

With Steinbrenner’s passing, The Sports Debates would like to honor his legacy with a debate befitting his stellar, albeit controversial, career.

Was George Steinbrenner good or bad for MLB?

Ever the Yankee fan, Babe Ruthless has expressed that he would consider it an honor to sing the praises of George Steinbrenner, while Loyal Homer – who as a fan has found his team on the receiving end of Steinbrenner’s “style” – will happily express his displeasure at the influence Steinbrenner had on the game of baseball.
