I was often misquoted. I was supportive of my managers, even though they all may not think so.
I think about the next season right away.
In the end, I’ll put my good acts up against those of anybody in this country. Anybody.
Is it in the best interest of baseball to sell beer in the ninth inning? Probably not. The rule has got to be more clearly defined. And then some process should be set up where the judge is not also the appeals judge.
I don’t think that anybody should be suspended for life for anything, other than murder. How is it helping someone to say, ‘You’re done forever, your life’s over’?
Ruth was probably the greatest athlete to perform in any sport. Never has there been anybody like him.
Let’s not talk punishment.
I don’t want to be in the Hall of Fame. I don’t think owners should be.
I haven’t always made the right decisions.
I am dead set against free agency. It can ruin baseball.
People keep coming up to me and asking, ‘How does it feel to be banned for life?’ Banned for life. I wasn’t banned for life. There was never a word of suspension, probation or ban in that agreement. It was never meant to be part of it.
But why shouldn’t I speak out? Don’t you speak out in this country?
We plan absentee ownership as far as running the Yankees is concerned.
I am tough. Sometimes I’m unreasonable. I have to catch myself every once in a while.
As I’ve always said, the way New Yorkers back us we have to produce for them.
