Attention turns to financing as Yankees limp home

Their season is over. The quest has failed. This version of Yankee Stadium will never again host a return to baseball’s promised land. And with the playoffs out of reach, this year’s mediocre pinstriped edition will hold court in “The House that Ruth Built” for the final time this weekend against an equally miserable Baltimore squad.

Yet, don’t feel too down. Opening next spring, according to a report released Tuesday by State Assemblyman Richard Brodsky (D –Westchester), is the long awaited “House that You Built” as coined by the Yonkers Tribune blog which posted excerpts from Brodsky’s report Wednesday.

Another of the numerous critics of the financial practices at work behind the scenes in the Yankees' new home, Brodsky has also been joined on the national level by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), as reported in Newsday.

Kucinich has pointed to the discrepancy between the assessed land value of the new stadium and that of the surrounding area; a topic covered by Juan Gonzalez of the Daily News last week.

On another note, Times' columnist and South Bronx native David Gonzalez recollects on life in the borough with the Yankees next door.
