Fake buyers for fake Yankees sale identified

Tony Stark

Look, if the New York Daily News can report a Yankees sale that everyone else is calling “complete fiction,” why can’t the people who are interested in buying the Yankees be completely fictional? That’s the question Larry Granillo asks at Wezen-Ball today, and he profiles the potential suitors.

While I’d love to see Bruce Wayne buy the team, I think Larry is right in calling it a poor fit.  Jay Gatsby is also a personal favorite, but he has Frank McCourt fraudulence written all over him. You can’t repeat the past, Old Sport.

Tony Stark, though?  That could have some legs.  Developing …

    Ron Jeremy. He doesn’t break the mustache-only rule in terms of facial hair, but does anyone know if the Yankees have a policy against excessive back hair?

      Well, he does have a big bat.

    Steve Rogers would probably be a pretty good ball player, even though (impossible as it seems) he’d actually make the Yankees average age go up.

      Sure, but think of all the bad publicity over his PED use.

      But the Yankees already have a Captain…

    Personally, I think Monty Burns is a prime candidate. That seedy fella has Yanks written all over him….

      Doesn’t he already own the Orioles?

        HA! Release the hounds!!

    Professor Xavier would make a great team owner.

    Black Widow… just because…

    If Tony Stark bought the Yankees, I think Loki would have to buy the Red Sox.

    I love Larry’s column, but disagree with him about the merits of letting Smaug know about the Yankees.

    I would appreciate seeing “The Chiefest and Greatest of Calamities” fly over Yankee Stadium and lay waste to it, as he did to the city of Dale.
