There’s cheap, and then there’s cheap.
And the New York Yankees are apparently the latter.
The Yankees are the most valuable franchise in Major League Baseball, worth a reported $6 billion.
And yet, the team does not cover in-flight Wi-Fi for players traveling to games.
A new report from Sports Illustrated reveals that they expect the players to front the $9-per-person cost.
Sports reporters across the industry are cackling over the juxtaposition of the $360M contract the Yankees just signed for Aaron Judge, but then bulk at $40K for player connection.
General manager Brian Cashman had very little sympathy, saying, “I think most of our players can afford it.”
But of course it’s not the money – it’s the principle. Just like Zack Greinke and his legendary beef with guacamole.
That’s crazy lol
