Yankees considering move to old stadium

The New York Yankees announced today that they would consider playing a small number of games in their old home, providing skeptics with further evidence that new Yankee stadium is a dud. The teams $1.5 billion home, which opened in April, has been roundly criticized for it's over-priced seats and alarming home run rate. And the team isn't fairing much better - they're playing .500 baseball, despite big time free agents CC Sabathia and Mark Teixiera. Hal Steinbrenner has acknowledged the new stadium is not conducive to winning, and he intends to ask the city of New York for around $1 billion to refurbish the old stadium.
