Let the Stadium have it's final focus

By Brandon Speck

With the Hot Stove broiling and the Yankees working toward one of the best pitching rotations in all of Major League Baseball, the topic that dominated The Bronx regular season, in some respects, may have taken a back seat in recent weeks.

The Stadium is counting its final days. Babe’s house has already hosted its final pitch and the place across the road is getting closer and closer to beginning its own legacy.

When CC Sabathia was still available to anyone besides the Yanks, the 28-year-old hurler dominated sports talk, sports television, sports print, sports Web and sports in general. And while my upcoming assumption is simply that, it seems true enough for me to ask your opinions.

While CC’s signing should pay big dividends come September and October, getting the deal out of the way as quickly as possible was to benefit Yankee Stadium, now.

Again, maybe it’s just me, but since the Brewers sent the big man to New York, the focus seems to be back on the landmark with 85 years of history and 26 world championships.

A scroll through your favorite will find The Greatest Game Ever Played, The 25 Best Moments at Yankee Stadium, SaveYankeeStadium.com, and the list goes on.

Four months from now, the Yankees will begin a new legacy in a new park, a fact still much to the displeasure of many, but a fact still.

With some 100 days left before the newly-housed Yanks take the field, kudos to CC and all of the offseason newsmakers for getting their business out of the way as quickly as possible. We’ll have plenty of time to talk about you come April.

For now though, let the proper topic dominate the New York headlines. Let guys like Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle and Maris have their final days in the “Save Yankee Stadium” spotlight.
