Boss: Yanks have always been envied (http://msn.espn.go.com/mlb/news/2002/0717/1406928.html)

George Steinbrenner responded to charges from Cleveland owner Larry Dolan that the New York Yankees are to blame for baseball's economic problems.

"Since the day that Babe Ruth was acquired, the Yankees have been the envy of many in the game and subject to the jealousies that success brings,'' Steinbrenner, the Yankees owner, said in a statement Wednesday. "In reality, it is the Yankees' success and commitment to providing a consistent winner that is at the center of the criticism.''
